Fit Food Fast

Let food be thy medicine

and medicine be thy food.

nutshell: outlets for healthy and exceptionally delicious eats at fast-food-prices located in urban food deserts

  > download floor and site plan

concept and observations:

· a health-centered restaurant to move locally grown produce and other whole foods and farm goods to food deserts.  unique dishes will be offered that are well-spiced and properly prepared so that they're not just healthy, but some of the tastiest plates in town.  by utilizing second harvest sources and other discount ingredient outlets, we will see that people have access to flavorful, healthy food at everyday prices.

· take-out format with a dining bar or a few tables.

· modular design to allow for future expansion.

· there are precisely zero cities or towns in this country (or world) that could not use an outlet for real food at affordable prices.

· awareness of dietary issues is exploding and most likely not reversing, making the model even more viable over time.

i'd like to mix the menu up, weekly or perhaps even daily. i realize this doesn't jibe with the western "standardized" model of food and everything else.  nonetheless, what is better than going to a dinner party where you have no say in the menu, yet come away with the best dining experience you've had in months?

 

> get first establishment up and running (proof of concept)

> sell it to a new owner (job creation)

> then go into mode3, providing construction and consulting services to the new upstarts

containers will be "made in detroit" (currently globally cool) and can be economically shipped to all points.
