Amy's Kitchen Entering Fast Food
On the menu are vegetarian burritos and burgers, pizzas, organic fries, along with smoothies and other specialty drinks.
Berliner and his wife, Rachel, founded the company in 1988 and named it after their daughter Amy. The company pulls in an estimated $370 million in sales and employs nearly 1,900 workers, including 1,000 in Sonoma County.
The restaurant is set to open in the spring of 2014 at the corner of Wilfred Avenue and Redwood Drive near the Graton Rancheria casino now under construction.
Other planned projects in the area include a hotel and a new shopping center to accommodate visitors to the casino.
