A healthy drive-thru? Check out Foodies

Sunday, January 23, 2011

Recently, the Seattle area acquired its first and only organic drive-thru grocery store, Foodies Drive-Thru Groceries and Espresso, located just south of 145th at 14061 Lake City Way NE. 206-794-6562.

Shoreline resident Russ Shulman decided to give up his real estate career and follow his passion for good, healthy food. 

Inspired by the sight of harried mothers with tired children at grocery stores, he created a drive thru market that featured food products consumers were most likely to want in a hurry - but the food is healthy.
"Foodies provides absolute service and convenience, practical for mothers on-the-go with kids in the car, or for commuters on the way to work or home to grab a snack or meal. It saves time when you need to make a quick run to the store without having to get out of the car."
Foodies carries a large selection of organic, gluten free, vegetarian, and vegan products. This includes refrigerated and frozen food, dry goods, and non-food products. Some items from the menu include a variety of tea, beverages for kids, refrigerated organic yogurt and cheese, burritos and pizza, and baby food and diapers.

Foodies customer picks up her order.
"Call ahead," says Russ, "and we'll have your order ready when you arrive, to save you even more time."
You can get dinner to go, an espresso drink, and your groceries, all in the same stop and without getting out of your car.

Currently, Foodies Drive Thru has a coupon promotion for a free sample of their products, See their website.

Or get $1 off your order by bringing in three cans of food for Northwest Harvest.

Even more convenient, have your groceries delivered.  Free delivery service for Foodies groceries, drinks, and prepared foods if you live in the area between 110th and 160th and 35th Ave to 15th Ave.

Foodies is looking to expand their hours, and open multiple locations within the year. Current store hours are: Weekdays from 6 am - 6:30 pm, weekends from 8 am - 6:30 pm.

Get to Foodies southbound only on Lake City Way. It's easy to spot their brightly colored red and gold food trailer.
