MANHATTAN, NY, August 12, 2010 (Press-News.org) Energy Kitchen, a Manhattan-based fast-casual chain whose health-centric menu features no menu item that exceeds 500 calories, announces the signing of an area development agreement for three restaurants in Washington, D.C.
The signed agreement âEUR" which will target downtown Washington, D.C., Georgetown and Chevy Chase âEUR" is part of an aggressive expansion plan calling for 1,000 of the calorie-conscious eateries nationwide over the next decade.
âEURœItâEUR s an exciting time for us as we build momentum and take big steps towards our national expansion goal,âEUR said Anthony Leone, Founder and President of Energy Kitchen, adding that other agreements have been signed in South Florida, Boston and New Jersey. âEURœAs more consumers begin to realize that fast food doesnâEUR t have to be fat food, we look forward to providing them with a healthy, delicious alternative to their dining options.âEUR
With a customer list that reads like a âEURœWhoâEUR s WhoâEUR of Hollywood âEUR" including Hugh Jackman, Nicole Kidman, Paula Abdul, Uma Thurman and Adrien Brody, among others âEUR" Energy Kitchen is introducing a new era of healthy eating with its nutritious and convenient meal choices. Providing low-calorie, low-fat, tasty eats that are good for you, Energy Kitchen invites its customers to eat healthy without sacrificing taste. Nothing on the menu is over 500 calories, everything grilled, baked or steamed, and full-calorie sodas arenâEUR t even an option.
âEURœWhat we offer is fast food without the guilt,âEUR Leone added.
Energy Kitchen caters to the health-conscious consumer, serving such items as burgers, wraps, smoothies and salads, as well as such entrees as grilled salmon and turkey meatloaf. The brand also offers a varied list of nutritional sides including such tasty items as grilled asparagus salad, baked homestyle potatoes and corn and edamame salad, and also healthy snacks for those on the go.
Washington, D.C. resident Karen Woolard Finley will lead Energy KitchenâEUR s area expansion.
Increasingly frustrated with her inability to find a restaurant that served healthy options quickly, Finley finally took matters into her own hands when she signed the local development agreement. âEURœThere are numerous restaurants in the area that claim to offer low-calorie meals to customers, but none of those come close to what we offer,âEUR she said. âEURœI couldnâEUR t be more excited about bringing Energy Kitchen and the healthy lifestyle it represents to Washington, DC.âEUR
