Audryana Hatcher frequents the west coast and noticed that there are many more fresh, fast eating options in comparison to Pittsburgh. Nearly five years ago, she started the journey to provide a solution to this problem.
Food runs in her family, and she considered herself culinarily spoiled growing up. Drawing inspiration from her mother and grandmother, Hatcher sought to open a healthy fast food business with her husband Richard and wanted the name to stand out.
“We wanted something catchy. I’ve always been a fan of puns and the little things that make you laugh. Healthy food is usually kind of a boring subject. It [the name Lettuce Eat] makes it fun, nice, and a good atmosphere for people before they even eat the food,” said Hatcher.
Located in Monroeville Mall, Lettuce Eat offers quick, healthy food that caters to any diet. Freshness is a standard, not an option. The restaurant does not receive any shipments but instead goes directly to markets to ensure the food meets the right mark. Hatcher is passionate about being a source of healthy living.
“I love being able to give back in the sense of food, something that brings everyone together, making it taste good actually invites more people over to the healthy food side,’ said Hatcher.
Menu items such as homemade soups, salads, wraps, and panini sandwiches keep customers coming back for more. Lettuce Eat also offers catering services for any occasion.
They remain dedicated to giving back not only through healthy food but also by partnering with organizations to fight for causes such as cystic fibrosis and autism. Their next community service event is November 21 for Autism Speaks. It’s a chef’s gala where people can live stream cooking fresh meals at home.
