ThinkstockPhotos 185916134As we rang in the New Year just 14 short days ago, most of us made resolutions that impact our image and the fast-food industry is right along with us. The industry is working overtime to change the way diners perceive its menu offerings and avoid fast food becoming what some are calling a “dirty” word. Chick-fil-A was one of the first restaurants this year to announce a healthy addition to its menu. The Atlanta-based company will replace its coleslaw with a kale and broccolini salad Monday, saying it is one of the first fast-food restaurants to add “superfoods” to its menu. The “Superfood Side” is made with a blend of hand-chopped kale and broccolini, tossed in a sweet and tangy maple vinaigrette dressing and topped with dried sour cherries and served with a blend of roasted nuts to enhance the flavor and add crunch, Chick-Fil-A said.

The cannabis-infused edibles industry has become increasingly competitive as people everywhere vie for a piece of the business. We expect that to continue as investors get more heavily involved in the industry and California, Michigan, Nevada, Arizona, Maine, Ohio and Massachusetts potentially ask voters next year whether to legalize the recreational use of marijuana for adults.
