Vegan fast-food chain lands $22 million in funding for expansion

Investors are noticing the popularity of vegan food.

Grub Street reports that Californian fast-casual chain Veggie Grill has wooed new and existing investors to the tune of $22 million dollars. Their epic vegan bowls, burgers, and salads are getting the opportunity to reach new audiences beyond their West Coast roots.

The widening of their footprint will also mean vegan options in more schools and airports down the road, a further sign of the acceleration of a need for more accessible plant-based dining options. Having recently announced that they will be the first chain to sell the new Beyond Burger from Beyond Meat, it’s been nothing by wall to wall hype for the brand.

So what does that sort of coin really mean for Veggie Grill? They anticipate doubling in size by 2019. We’ll start working on doubling our appetites for vegan buffalo wings, and doubling the number of vegans we can dine with, now.

Concerned about endangered animals? Stop eating them
