Vegan fast food eatery Plant Power Fast Food opened its second location this week—complete with a drive-thru window—in the space of a former Burger King in Encinitas, a city north of San Diego, CA. “This is a perfect location for a healthy drive-thru restaurant,” Plant Power co-founder Zach Vouga said. “We’ve taken a former Burger King and transformed it into a convenient oasis to enjoy a delicious plant-based meal.” The restaurant serves veganized American fast food classics such as burgers, fries, shakes, sandwiches, wraps, salads, and desserts, and a dedicated children’s menu. “As vegan restaurant businesses like ours continue to grow,” Vouga told VegNews, “it’s inevitable that we will increasingly disrupt the animal agriculture model that has been a mainstay of the food business.” The company opened its flagship location in the Ocean Beach neighborhood in January 2016 with the mission of bringing more wholesome dining options to the area and is eyeing nationwide expansion. Meanwhile, vegan fast-food options continue to boom across the West Coast with last week’s grand opening of Next Level Burger inside a Whole Foods Market in Seattle.
