“To be silent is to be complicit” said Zach Vouga, co-founder of Plant Power Fast Food.
“Often businesses are wary of conflict by sharing a stance that may polarize their fanbase” he added.
“Plant Power’s entire reason for existence is based upon our polarizing stance on animal advocacy and environmentalism so taking a stand for another cause we feel strongly about was easy for us.”
Vegan Fast-Food Chain
Plant Power Fast Food opened its first restaurant in 2016 in San Diego. It has since opened five more brick-and-mortar locations and launched a food truck.
Last year, vegan Disney start Mena Massoud invested in the chain.
“I’ve spent a great deal of time touring North America visiting a lot of plant-based restaurants” Massoud said.
“Plant Power Fast Food immediately stuck out as a big player…There is great attention to detail, and we share the same outlook, that in order to cause real change, we have to make plant-based living accessible to the masses.”
