McDonald's alum to launch healthy fast-food restaurant


Can the words "healthy" and "fast food" really coexist happily together? Many have tried to pair the two and failed, but a couple of former McDonald's executives believe they may know the secret to making "healthy fast food" actually work.

Mike Roberts and Mike Donahue both used to work in the trenches at the biggest fast food franchise in the world and now -- with financial backing from an entrepreneur named Steve Sidwell -- they are looking to launch a healthy, environmentally-friendly option in the fast casual dining market, according to Ad Age. The concept, which is tentatively being referred to as Stephanie's after Sidwell's daughter, is expected to open it's first location next year with the ambitious goal of reaching 250 sites in the next five years.
