Veggie Grill was the first restaurant to add the famous Beyond Burger to its menu. The chain currently has 28 different locations across Washington, California, and Oregon but will now be expanding into Chicago.
This will be the brand’s first mid-west expansion and the outlet will be opened in the Lakeview/Lincoln Park neighborhood. The brand recently received $22 million in funding to boost their efforts of expansion.
Veggie Grill CEO Steve Heeley said: “We are thrilled to introduce Veggie Grill to the Chicago community and we couldn’t be more excited to have our first location be opening in Lakeview. This is such a lively and accessible neighborhood and we can’t wait for locals and visitors alike to experience Veggie Grill.”
CEO, Steve Heeley, said he also has more plans to open additional restaurants in Chicago and some stores across the east of the USA.
