The internet has been in a happy uproar recently over the news that Amy’s Kitchen, purveyor of healthy convenience foods like frozen burritos, teriyaki bowls and soon—vegan chocolate bars—is about to break new ground (literally) with a vegetarian drive-thru in Rohnert Park, California.
Latest Vegan News got a chance to look at the Amy’s Drive Thru menu, and it features a lengthy list of traditional fast food favorites, all with a healthy twist.
Ingredients are all non-GMO, and the eatery will be using 95 percent organic ingredients. Everything on the menu can be made vegan or gluten-free, and the pizza crust, pizza sauce, veggie burgers, buns, burrito wraps, pasta, and tofu will be made in the company’s Sonoma County kitchens.

The 4,000-square-foot building features a living roof, tables made from retired auto brake drums, upcycled metal and wood, solar panels on the drive-thru roof and a whole host of other environmentally friendly details.
“Our relationships with farmers and our knowledge of how to make delicious food on a large
scale has really made this project possible—we’ve been able to keep the quality high and the
prices reasonable” said Andy Berliner, co-founder of Amy’s Kitchen along with wife, Rachel, in a press release.
