A chain of so-called healthy fast food restaurants is planning to open locations in the Valley.
EVOS, which markets its hamburgers and French fries as healthy alternatives to traditional fast food fare, announced its first Arizona location will open some time this year in the Valley. Kate Hemingway, a spokesperson, said officials haven't chosen an exact location yet.
A company press release said EVOS uses "alternative cooking techiques and healthier ingredients" like beef without hormones and antibiotics, baked fries and organic ingredients, which makes means its food has 50 to 70 percent less fat, calories and cholesterol than food at other restaurants.
Arizona is part of a 12 state expansion plan. The company opened its first restaurant near Las Vegas in 2006.
