Mayor Rahm Emanuel will announce Tuesday a new program that converts defunct newsstands into healthy food kiosks.
The city will issue its first Emerging Business Permit to e.a.t. spots, a micro-retail sidewalk shop that sells salads, wraps and grab-n-go foods. The first location opened Monday at 368 W. Madison St., on the sidewalk just south of the Lyric Opera House. The second location will soon open at 151 W. Van Buren St., with four total kiosks by the end of the year. It plans to expand beyond downtown in 2015.
