Need more proof that the future of food is plant-based? Plant Power Fast Food, an all-vegan eatery opened their second location this week – but that’s not even the best part! This new location has with a drive-thru window … because it is taking the place of a former Burger King in the Encinitas neighborhood of San Diego, CA. That’s right, you’ll be able to get vegan food thru the window of a former Burger King. Amazing!
Plant Power Fast Food specializes in veganized American fast food classics, such as burgers, fries, shakes, wraps, desserts, as well as a menu just for kiddos.
They also have a vegan version of the Big Mac called the Big Zac, which is made with two sizzled patties, special sauce, American “cheese,” lettuce, onions, and pickles. Yep, that’s all vegan!
“We’ve taken a former Burger King and transformed it into a convenient oasis to enjoy a delicious plant-based meal,” Zach Vouga, co-founder of Plant Power told VegNews.
Now with two locations, Plant Power Fast Food is a true testament to the growing popularity of plant-based food. In the past, vegan options at fast food and grab-and-go spots were few and far between. But these days, consumers are moving away from meat and dairy while also seeking out less processed foods. This new shift not only caters to vegans, it also provides healthy options for those who want to reduce their consumption of animal products, whether it be for health, environmental, or animal welfare reasons.
Recent studies have shown that around one-third of Americans are choosing to leave meat off their plates more frequently and a 2015 survey by market analyst Mintel found that 61 percent of consumers say they enjoy menu items that heavily feature vegetables – sounds like Plant Power Fast Food is giving consumers exactly what they want!
