Restaurant Goes Low-Carb
By George Anderson
Andrew Goldstein owner of the Good Ol’ Days restaurant wanted to lose weight so he went on a low-carb diet. Six inches smaller around the waist later, Mr. Goldstein decided to put his restaurant on a low-carb diet, as well, according to the Charlotte Business Journal.
The result according to Mr. Goldstein is business “is up 20% to 40% each day.”
Good Ol’ Days’ menu selections include “fried chicken, spaghetti and meatballs, pancakes and French toast, things not typically allowed hard-core dieters.” The restaurant’s bagels and buns contain only two grams of carbohydrates and sugar per serving.

thing in foodservice?
Mr. Goldstein says his French toast made with challah
and egg substitute has been a huge hit with customers. “I have added 40% to
my business just because of the French toast alone.” [George
