ST. LOUIS, May 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Fred and Ricky's today announced the grand opening of its second location at 11252 Olive Blvd. (Olive at Mosley) in Creve Coeur, in addition to its first location at 64 Weldon Parkway in Maryland Heights near Westport Plaza.
Fred & Ricky's makes delicious 100% plant-based foods (meaning no meat and no dairy) that are fresh, all natural, preservative-free, and made from scratch in small batches by their culinary staff at their Westport commercial kitchen. Fred & Ricky's hand-crafted dishes range from pastas, rice dishes and hearty soups to breads, salads & desserts. Fred & Ricky's uses local and organic ingredients whenever possible, and many dishes are gluten-free. Food is sold in high-quality BPA-Free "To Go" containers, and catering services are also available. Online ordering and a delivery service are planned for later this year.
"We're very excited to be launching our business in St. Louis," noted Kathleen Waidmann, also known as "Fred." "This all started with me trying to help my husband (Richard Waidmann aka "Ricky") fight his family's history of heart disease. It's become our obsession to help people avoid preventable diseases by eating delicious, healthy food, and I'm delighted to be able to share the same recipes and dishes our family and friends have enjoyed for years." Added Ricky, "Research shows that a plant-based diet can help protect people from heart disease, obesity, diabetes and many cancers linked to a typical 'Western diet' made up of meat, dairy, preservatives and processed foods. Fred has been able to create wonderful dishes that both plant-eaters and meat-and-cheese eaters enjoy. We've only been open a month, and so far people absolutely love the food!"
