Parkland Hospital Opens Healthy Food Restaurant Outlet

UFood Grill has opened its first hospital location, at Parkland Hospital in Dallas, and is eyeing other locations in the healthcare segment, according to a CNN report. The Newton, MA, based concept also operates at Boston’s Logan Airport and the Dallas/Foxworth International Airport, along with several street and mall units. The concept features a healthy food menu emphasizing grilling and steaming of natural and organic ingredients as much as possible, along with whole grains, low-fat cheeses and plenty of meatless dishes.

Parkland is a major major public hospital with some 9,000 onsite staff. The 8,200-sq.ft. location where the restaurant will set up was previously occupied by a McDonald’s unit. The UFood unit will have 270 seats as well as a takeout counter. It is owned by UFood franchisee Puente Concessions, which won the bid process for the space. Puente will also operate an Urban Taco Mexican taqueria concept at Parkland.
