Atlanta-based fast casual Fresh To Order was recognized as “One To Watch” by QSR magazine. The magazine also named the fast-casual restaurant an honorable mention in its inaugural HALO Awards, which recognizes restaurants for healthy menu offerings.
Fresh To Order was named “One To Watch” for its upscale menu items that are made to order for each guest in 10 minutes for around $10, as well as for its emphasis on food presentation and the sleek restaurant atmosphere that is similar to a fine-dining establishment.
The restaurant also received an honorable mention in QSR’s HALO Awards, which recognized the brand’s Better For You Burgers. Fresh To Order’s Better For You Burgers are available in three different versions: Tuna Burger, Black Bean Burger, and Bison Burger, and feature healthier ingredients than typical beef burgers.
“We are so pleased to be recognized by QSR magazine for our successful efforts to serve healthy, fresh, and upscale food quickly,” says Pierre Panos, founder and CEO of Fresh To Order. “We take nutrition and food quality very seriously, and we are glad to see our efforts recognized by such an important industry publication.”
Fresh To Order’s extensive menu features high-quality, chef-inspired appetizers, entrees, and desserts at affordable prices. Options include crushed almond crusted tuna steak, brown sugar roasted pork loin with caramelized onion apricot chutney, and a selection of soups and salads made in-house. Upon ordering, customers can watch as the kitchen crew fire up the grill and cook proteins like chicken, steak, and fish. Salad dressings and soups are prepared from scratch twice-daily in-store.
By incorporating seasonal changes and chef-driven creations, the chain has a unique ability to respond to new food trends and growing consumer demands for healthy meals that are made-to-order and fresh. In addition, Fresh To Order is a member of the National Restaurant Association’s Kids LiveWell program, designed to help parents make the healthful choice the easy choice for their children when dining out.
