Feng Shui is being integrated into various businesses globally, including Chain Fast Food Restaurants. This list includes McDonald's, Wendy's, Burger King and Panera Bread.
So what creates a Feng Shui inspired restaurant?
The integration of Shen Energy (soul energy), is fused into the buildings overall design. This is accomplished though the use specific colors, design of the furniture, layout of the space and type of lighting as to name a few methods.
Southern California is the home to the First Fully Feng Shui Designed McDonald's in 2008
When a restaurant claims to be 'Feng Shui-ied,' its strongly suggested they also take into consideration the authenticity of the products and/or services being provided. This includes the quality of food. Ideally, no GMO's, artificial coloring, preservatives, etc.
Everything is interconnected when living the lifestyle of Feng Shui. You could have a beautifully Feng Shui designed restaurant, yet if that restaurant is still promoting unhealthy selections of food, the bottom line is, it's still unhealthy.
On the way to offering a full menu that is 100% non-artificial and preservative free is, Panera Bread. That is a great start and perhaps they could also include GMO free and all organic selections. I know that request could take time, yet it would be a game changer!
