According to a Bankers Life and Casualty Company survey, 70 percent of middle-class Baby Boomers fear they won't have enough cash to last through retirement. Too often, this fear leads seniors to make the decision to sacrifice better nutrition with fruits and vegetables for cheaper, less nutritional staples. Sweet Tomatoes wants to change that and help seniors living on a fixed income enjoy an affordable, nutritious meal.
Beginning April 9, all restaurants will offer seniors age 60-plus an all-you-care-to-eat meal for $6.99, Monday through Thursday from 2-5 p.m. The price includes a beverage. So for $6.99, guests age 60-plus will be able to enjoy a bounty of healthful options along the restaurant’s more than 45-foot salad bar and also the soup, pasta, fruit and dessert stations – all of which feature options for every dietary consideration including vegan, vegetarian, omnivore and gluten-free. Plus, with a rotating monthly menu, guests will experience new options each month.
Currently, the price from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. is $8-$9 and from 4 p.m. – close, around $10, depending on location. Also, the price for a drink is around $2.50, depending on location.
