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!

Veggie Grill’s success is a true sign of the times. With the growing interest in plant-based eating, the number of vegan restaurants will only continue to rise. But you don’t have to wait for a Veggie Grill to open in your town. Most cities have incredible restaurants that are either all-vegan or can create fantastic vegan dishes. You just have to know how to find them. Of course, Google is a great resource, but here are some other ways to find vegan restaurants near you.

The abundance of vegan alternatives and the increasing popularity of animal-free dishes make now a better time than ever to ditch meat and other animal products for good. Click here to order your FREE Vegetarian Starter Guide.
