Vegan restaurant chain Spotless Burgers recently opened in California. Starting this month, the family-owned company is opening six locations in Southern California, including Glendora, Upland, and San Gabriel, followed by Riverside, Burbank, and La Verne. Founders Al and Luz Gross created the concept of Spotless Burgers after experiencing the challenge of finding quality vegan food on the go, and a void in the market when it came to hospitality due to a lack of competition.
“I wanted to come together and create a company that had a real mission behind faith, family, and community, and put hospitality and quality at the center of it all,” Al Gross told VegNews. “And that’s how we began Spotless Burgers. We then began a nine-month process of locating partners with a like-minded mission.”
Vegan chicken on the menu
After months of taste-testing products and meeting with potential partners, Spotless Burgers teamed up with companies such as Alpha Foods, Follow Your Heart, Just Egg, Boxed Water, and Coconut Bliss for their products. The chain offers a minimal menu that includes vegan burgers such as the Alpha Chik (a vegan chicken burger with pepper jack cheese, pickles, and Spotless sauce), the Truffle Shuffle (Impossible Foods burger with American cheese), the Imposter (vegan egg burger with pepper jack cheese), and Alpha Chik’lits (vegan chicken nugget sliders). Sides include French fries, vegan chicken nuggets, tater tots, and salad. Spotless Burgers plans to soon add monthly limited-time offers and milkshakes to its menu.
