Fit Fast, another take on healthy eating

Although they have been operating for nearly two years, Fit Fast, located in Eagle Plaza in Voorhees, is (for those seeking a healthy yet quick dining option) a gem that has been discovered by few. The deli-like surroundings hold nine tables with room to spare, which, depending on the time of day, may be partially occupied or eerily empty.

The whole atmosphere seems to be providing dieter encouragement, with the walls painted a variety of somewhat obnoxiously bright colors and display posters covered in slim athletes beaming as they train. A bookshelf of fitness books and an array of business cards for different nearby athletic associations seem to be there to hold waiting customers attention as they wait an average of 15 minutes to be served.

“Whey they say Fit Fast, I think they mean fast food… It’s not fast service,” a middle-aged customer commented.

That same customer went on to say, however, that it was worth it for those trying to eat healthier and she would return. Calorie, protein, crabs, and fat information is also conveniently listed next to each item and all dishes are weighted to assure the portion size is relative to the nutritional information.
 
The extremely friendly service and delicious variety of foods get an A+. Salads, sandwiches, wraps and dinner plates, such as Grilled Chicken Breast or Eggplant Parmigiana, are served throughout the day. Vegetarians who have trouble finding meatless fast food will rejoice at their tasty grilled veggie wrap, veggie lasagna, as well as a variety of meat-free salads.

A business run by the families of two good friends, the owners say they are continuing to grow, and hope to be able to soon open a standalone with a drive-through and receive more customers between the ages of 16 and 25. It should also be noted that Fit Fast offers free delivery, as well as their eat in, take out, and catering services and that they are closed on Sundays.
