Jan Bredack opened the doors to Veganz, the world’s first all-vegan supermarket chain, in 2011. Since then, he has turned “tofu into dough” and shows no plans of stopping, with plans to open dozens of new stores across Europe over the next several years.

Right now, Veganz has two stores in Berlin, with a third slated to open this year. Frankfurt, Munich, and Hamburg also have stores. Stores opening soon or currently in the works include locations in Vienna, London, Amsterdam, Zurich, Barcelona, Milan, and Copenhagen. Then, Veganz plans to move to the U.S.! According to The Local, “In 2016, Veganz will open a vegan shopping center in Portland, including a shoe and clothing store and restaurant.”

What is a Veganz shopping experience like? Well, The Local says it’s like no other shopping experience you’ve seen before: “Walking into a Veganz supermarket you would be hard pushed to believe that there were no animal products around. Every type of food that you would expect in your usual supermarket is available, from cheeses to different kinds of ‘fish’ and ‘meat.'”

For founder Bredack, who is a former meat eater himself, the store is not trying to make the whole world vegan, but aims instead to make the world a little easier for those who are vegan. “It should be really simple,” he said. “People shouldn’t have to cut out anything.”

Along with his supermarket expansion set to bring all-vegan grocery stores to shoppers across Europe, Bredack has other interesting plans for his store and brand. The Local reports: “Bredack is taking Veganz a step further, as they plan to take their food to festivals, music and sports events in a mobile snack trailer. From the specially designed food trucks they will offer vegan hotdogs and burgers and plan to tour Europe.”

Now that’s one way to bring the message that it’s possible to eat vegan in every part of life to people all over! For more on Veganz and its food truck expansion, be sure to check out the video!
