Veggie Grill to Open Two New Locations

The vegan casual-eating chain will soon be opening new franchises in Long Beach, CA and Seattle, WA.

Popular Southern California-based chain Veggie Grill has announced that it will be adding two new restaurants to its nine existing locations, with sites in the works in Seattle, WA and Long Beach, CA. Veggie Grill currently has seven restaurants in California and two in Oregon, with the Northeast expansion taking place earlier this year. On Thursday, Veggie Grill announced via Twitter that construction had begun for a franchise in the South Lake Union area of Seattle, and the following day, the chain announced that its new Long Beach location will open on Tuesday. Veggie Grill has garnered acclaim for its plant-based renditions of American comfort foods such as burgers, sandwiches, nachos, and buffalo wings.
