Austin, TX-based food truck Counter Culture is looking to take its vegan restaurant off the road to a traditional restaurant space, and it’s enlisting fans to help. The popular food trailer has launched a Kickstarter project to raise funds to assist with the costs of moving into a “medium-sized restaurant in East Austin with a mid-century, diner-themed interior,” according to the project page. The business hopes to raise $11,000 by February 1, and donors have already contributed more than $6,000. Founded in 2009 by Sue Davis, the mobile food truck has seen success with its cruelty-free fare—which includes seitan cheesesteaks, barbecue-jackfruit sandwiches, and raw Caesar salad—and was featured in the September+October 2011 issue of VegNews.
