UFood Restaurant Group Partners With Nutritionix to Offer Online Nutrition Calculator

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - Sep 27, 2011) - UFood Restaurant Group, Inc. (OTCBB: UFFC) announced that the company has partnered with Nutritionix, a nutrition information software company, to launch an online nutrition calculator today, available at www.ufoodgrill.com.

The fully customizable nutrition calculator allows consumers to select their meal choices, and then generates a complete nutritional profile -- including calories, fat, sodium and carbohydrates -- for all of the items in the meal.

"Because health and nutrition is at the core of our brand, we've always been transparent about our nutritional information," said UFood CEO George Naddaff. "By creating an online nutrition calculator, we're able to offer consumers a customized snapshot of what they are eating, which gives them even greater insight and control over their nutritional intake."

Nutritionix is a privately held software company specializing in helping restaurants create interactive web-based nutrition calculators. Nutritionix also aggregates restaurant nutrition data to enable consumers to locate healthy meals near them, and share the meals they create on social networks.
