Our History

Every day is an adventure

From our first pot pie to over one million meals a day.

September 2014

A whole lot of organic.

Twenty-seven years after the first pot pie, Amy’s Kitchen was harvesting over 85 million pounds of organic vegetables a year.

Changing the fast food game.

After tasting over 3,000 veggie burgers and two years of searching for the perfect organic potato to make fresh-cut fries, the Berliners opened Amy’s first Drive Thru on July 20th, 2015. Hundreds of fans lined up for veggie burgers, fries, shakes, burritos, pizza, mac & cheese and salads. Every menu item has a gluten free or vegan option too. It was a labor of love that completely flipped American fast food upside down, from the organic and non-GMO ingredients to the solar panels and living roof.

Amy’s takes home the Rodale Institute’s Organic Pioneer Award.

The Berliners were using organic ingredients before organic was a national certification. In the beginning, organic vegetables were hard to find. So Andy and Rachel worked with local farmers to get the ingredients they needed. Together, they helped pioneer the organic food industry. In 2015, Amy’s Kitchen won the prestigious Rodale Institute’s Organic Pioneer Award for leading the movement towards an organic planet. They proudly share this award with all of the farmers they’ve worked with, many since the very beginning.

National Veggie Burger What?

On June 5th, 2016, Amy’s Kitchen established a new food holiday, National Veggie Burger Day, a celebration of all kinds of veggie burgers and the positive impact they have on the planet. Hillary’s Eat Well, Big Mountain Organic, Quorn, Field Roast, Dominex Angel Burgers and GoGO Quinoa all joined in. And #VeggieBurgerDay became the number one topic on Twitter that day.
