Tofu To Go, Please

posted on September 27, 2002

"O.K., I'd like one tofu sandwich, two veggie pockets with soy cheese ….. and, uh .. Can I get fries with that?"

A fast-food drive-thru in Boca Raton, Florida, is offering non-fried, low fat meals in an attempt to capitalize on the bad publicity surrounding the fat and calorie count of the typical fried and super-sized fast-food menu item.

The Healthy Bites Grill menue is at the high-end of price range … with a sandwich, drink and side dish costing from six to nine dollars. No matter the higher price, the company already has fielded requests to open franchise restaurants in Japan, Canada and Kuwait.
