Minnies: Restaurant That Specializes In Portion Control With Miniature Foods

As we become more health conscious as a society, it's all about portion control and snacking versus consuming large meals. But when you eat out you will often find that you are stuck with large portions, either forgoing your healthy eating lifestyle and overeating, or wasting your food and the money you paid for it. A new restaurant makes all foods in miniature size to accommodate proper good portioning.

Minnies, true to its name is all about miniature foods. Their business idea really isn't an unusual one, as sliders, or bite-sized burgers are appearing on menus in restaurants around the world as appetizers or part of a main course. But unlike at those restaurants, Minnies doesn't make any portions in regular size. It's not all about burgers at Minnies, they also serve sandwiches, salads, and pizza. Some come in servings of 3 miniature snacks while others come in singles with other accompanied side dishes.

The Minnies restaurant, located in Chicago is said to be a favorite of President Obama, and unfortunately, franchise opportunities don't seem to be on the horizon.

they would be more interesting

if they'd put the amount of calories of each meal, or each part/sandwich of the meal... it would be dead easy to control the calorie intake.

Not so new

Though pretty cool, this restaurant's been around for at least 3 years...
