The World’s First 24-Hour Vegan Drive-Thru Set to Open in Canada
Globally Local, a vegan restaurant in Canada, announced it would open a second location in Ontario this June with the world’s first-ever vegan 24-hour drive-thru. The company’s owner, James McInnes, said the new fast-food joint will offer a menu similar to the one at Globally Local’s restaurant in London, Ontario.
The main menu—not to be confused with the full breakfast sandwich menu—will include vegan takes on iconic fast-food items: the Famous Burger (similar to the Big Mac), the Vegan Vopper (a spin on Burger King’s Whopper), and a Crispy Chikun sandwich made from seitan.
McInnes rose to fame in 2016 with his McVegans food truck, which operates along with two brick-and-mortar locations.
While this is the first vegan 24-hour drive-thru, it’s by no means the only vegan-friendly fast-food place in Canada. Last month, The Canadian Business Journal reported that Canadian chain Pizza Pizza had introduced vegan cheese, allowing the country’s growing vegan community to customize their pies.
