America’s Largest Vegan Chain Is Expanding to the Midwest
One of the nation’s most successful all-vegan fast-food chains, Veggie Grill is a West Coast favorite. Known for its Buffalo Bomber sandwich and VG Beyond Burger, Veggie Grill enjoys a strong presence in California and also has a few locations in Washington and Oregon.
Now the chain is expanding to the Midwest, with plans to open new locations in Chicago this year. Eater Chicago reports:
Chicagoans who made New Year’s resolutions to eat less meat have good news: Veggie Grill, the nation’s largest vegetarian fast-casual restaurant chain, plans to open its first Chicago restaurant in mid-February at the northeast corner of Clark and Broadway streets. But that’s not the chain’s only news—it intends to open four more Chicago-area locations at an undetermined date.
We can’t wait!
