I don't see this as an obstacle. That just means you can charge more for the food. You could make your whole brand image Tegridy Farms-like. Like you're an honest and humble brand with locally-sourced food that stands up for human and animal rights and donates a percentage to planting trees or saving the turtles or whatever. Have a lot of vegan options on the menu (beans and lentils), but also some chicken, turkey, and fish for the meat-eaters/freegans/flexitarians.Fast Food and Healthy Just Don't Go Together
Healthy Food is more expensive.
The restaurant managers can't have fast service with healthy food because they have to be careful not to waste food. That means not rushing it like McDonald's does. I used to work at a McDonald's and the amount of wrong orders skyrocket during peak times. The cooks and the line workers have to be fast and mistakes are made. That means people coming back to get replacements and the first order has to go in the trash. Also the employees dropping food, making the same thing twice, etc. To be fast you must be willing to sacrifice pounds of food a year.
The "health" crowd also means that you'll have to be transparent from where you source your food. You won't be buying the food from this mega farms most fast food restaurants buy their food from. Why? Because this mega farms have unhealthy practices. All that matters to them is quantity over quality that allows them to lower their price. They use pesticices, growth hormones, gmo, and non eco friendly growing techniques. People who actively seek "healthy" restaurants will have higher standards then your average McDonald's customer.
Edit: Here's an example of a real ad like that. And here's another. And a third while we're at it.
