While the US may be known for its supersized burgers, fries and sugary shakes, and while a large percentage of the population is suffering the dietary consequences of frequent patronage, there is a bright star on the horizon. Thanks to 30-year veteran entrepreneur Jason Brown of Seattle, the face of fast fare is changing radically.
..Based in Seattle, Organic To Go is the nation’s first fastcasual café chain to be USDA certified as an organic retailer, with operations in Seattle, Los Angeles, Orange County and San Diego. Organic To Go’s food is now available in over 170 locations, including 33 cafés, more than 120 wholesale outlets, 14 universities, and 11 kiosks at Los Angeles International Airport with one also at San Diego International Airport. All Organic To Go fare is made with organic ingredients whenever possible, with emphasis on locally grown sources, and is always natural and free of harmful chemicals.
