Au Bon Pain One Of U.s.'s Healthiest Restaurants

Tuesday, March 25, 2008

Au Bon Pain today announced that Health magazine has named it one of America's Healthiest Restaurants. Au Bon Pain was recognized as a "shining example" of a restaurant that provides healthy grab-and-go fare. The editors of Health magazine praised Au Bon Pain's Nutrition Kiosks, which allow guests to plan a nutritious meal and even sort the menu by a specific nutritional requirement--whether it be high fiber or protein; or low carb, fat, cholesterol, sodium, or calories. Au Bon Pain's recent move to using preservative-free chicken, which provides better flavor and less sodium, was also cited as one of the reasons the editors love the chain. "At Au Bon Pain, we strive to provide consumers with fresh, great tasting menu options that are naturally healthy, as well as the tools to help them make informed menu choices," says Au Bon Pain President/CEO Sue Morelli. "In today's world of supersized fast-food meals, our guests return to Au Bon Pain time and again because they know that they can find a flavorful meal that best fits their individual nutritional needs. We are proud to be recognized by Health magazine as one of the healthiest restaurants in America." In keeping with Au Bon Pain's commitment to providing great tasting, healthful menu options to its guests, the company recently introduced a new product line called Portions. Tapping into the tapas/small plates trend, Portions is a line of 14 delicious dishes made fresh daily, packaged individually and with 200 or less calories per dish. This new meal concept addresses consumers' desire for healthy, convenient foods that, most importantly, taste good. In addition to the in-store Nutrition Kiosks, complete nutrition information for the entire Au Bon Pain menu, can be found online at Guests seeking further assistance planning a nutritious meal can use Au Bon Pain's online "Smart Menu" application, where they can view the nutrition information for a specific combination of food choices, and search for combinations that best meet their individual dietary needs.
