Pita Pit’s Vegan Grub

The fast-food chain adds a vegan black bean patty to its menu.

Thanks to Compassion Over Killing (COK), Pita Pit, the fast-food restaurant chain with more than 100 locations across the US, has added a vegan black bean veggie patty to its menu. COK, who worked with Pita Pit on the new veg option, is also currently trying to convince Subway to offer more vegan items. “With the increasing consumer demand for meat-, egg-, and dairy-free options, it should come as no surprise that more and more restaurants are dishing out ‘meaty’ vegan cuisine,” writes COK executive director Erica Meier on DC Examiner. Pita Pit, in addition to the new black bean patty, also offers vegan-friendly falafel, hummus, and garden pitas.
