That’s why the California-based Amy’s Drive Thru is such an interesting location. It’s the first organic, vegetarian, gluten-free (optional) fast food chain in America, and business is doing so well that the restaurant is looking into becoming a chain that will spread all across the country.The next Amy’s Drive Thru is already being planned in Northern California in an abandoned Denny’s, though the goal from Amy’s director of operations Paul Schiefer is to eventually open up locations across the country.

Employees do get paid above minimum wage and receive full benefits as well.via Amy’s Drive ThruThe recipes are approved by Amy’s employees and implement the feeling of down-home, family cooking, though there are plenty of options for anyone looking to eat healthily. The restaurants use local ingredients and farm-fresh selections, which is a big proponent for the business, and it seems as though the people are pretty happy with this type of operation, especially as Amy’s exists to serve.
