FE&S: How are you able to extend farm-to-table, sustainable food to the masses at affordable prices?
AE: Our mission is to democratize good, wholesome food. By sourcing naturally raised meats and seasonal produce locally through our proprietary supply chain, we are able to offer exceptional quality at a fraction of the cost of fine dining establishments.
FE&S: How are the menu and ordering process set up?
AE: Our build-your-own marketplate option allows customers to choose one protein, a grain and two seasonal sides. At our newest locations we also offer a menu of toasted sandwiches and made-to-order salads. Customers walk directly up to the counter, select the items of their choosing and their meal is prepared directly in front of them.
FE&S: What are the requirements for "nutritional" dishes?
AE: Nutrient-rich to us means whole, fresh food. Our quality meats are all naturally raised, antibiotic-free and certified humane, and our produce is peak-season to ensure we're serving food packed with nutritional benefits.
