My Fit Foods, soon to be right in front of the USA Today stand
Coming soon to Preston Center, a takeout place for health junkies. According to a sign in the window of the storefront of Luther Lane and Westchester Drive, My Fit Foods is moving in. According to the company’s website, they offer prepared meals as well as nutritional consulting and meal planning help. The site says that “80 percent of health and fitness results” are based on what you eat (funny, I always thought it was 76 percent) and goes on to spell out the company’s philosophy on food: “Active foods make you active and Lazy foods make you lazy. The only reason you are not active is because of the food you are fueling your body with.”
There are nine locations in Houston, where it was founded by, according to the site, personal trainer, nutritionist, and former Marine sergeant Mario Mendias. The Preston Center location looks to be the second outside of H-town.
I called a couple of the Houston locations, trying to find a company bigwig to speak with about the move to Dallas. The girl at the first location gave me what turned out to be a fax number. The phone-answerer at the next sounded excited about the expansion north, saying there were plans to open two or three stores in Dallas. But the person to talk to, he told me, is CEO Anthony Milton, who could best be reached by e-mail and would respond within a day. It’s been 19 hours so far, no word. Just saying.
