A longtime vegan couple, Sandra and Dylan McKee, looked around their Phoenix home base one day and realized that the options for vegans in the city were scarily limited. They had the idea to open a vegan grocery store in downtown Glendale. Veggie Rebellion, perfectly named, is the first vegan-ONLY grocery store in Arizona!
After visiting Portland Oregon, the couple became inspired by the cities ample vegan ventures and venues. McKee told KTAR News, “It is something that Phoenix desperately needs.” Although other areas in the town offer vegan options, the Mckee’s are banking on desperate, passionate customers that have been at a loss for their dietary and lifestyle needs. They plan to offer only food, with the exception of a few drinks and fresh produce, all 100% vegan.
