SAN DIEGO, CA (August 20, 2014) — Finding healthy, fresh and delicious menu choices in Indiana, Kansas, Missouri and Texas is easier than ever at Healthy Dining’s restaurant partner, Kolache Factory.

With 48 locations, Kolache Factory features dietitian-recommended menu options on HealthyDiningFinder.com that meet nutrition criteria emphasizing lean protein, vegetables, fruits, whole grains and unsaturated fats – hand-picked by Healthy Dining’s registered dietitians.

"Over the past few years, Kolache Factory has seen a growing number of our customers request the nutritional information for our menu items.  We certainly understand that our customers are interested in this information, and as always, we endeavor to give our customers exactly what they want," said Dawn Nielsen, Vice President of Kolache Factory.  "Six years ago, when Healthy Dining approached us about a partnership, we were thrilled to have their dietitians’ expertise in helping us analyze nearly 99% of our menu.  Our partnership allows Kolache Factory to maintain our focus on making the freshest, most delicious and nutritious kolaches in the country, while still putting our customers’ needs first.  That’s something that’s healthy for our business – and our customers.  And we feel really good about that."
