Fresh, Fast, Vegan Dining is Possible at Veggie Grill
We all know how hard it can be to find freshly prepared, healthy food on the road. This task is even harder for vegan travelers or those just trying to eat more vegetables as part of their diet. For this reason, we are so excited to tell you about a healthy West Coast fast food restaurant chain called Veggie Grill. Even meat lovers will love and appreciate the offerings at Veggie Grill (don’t believe us- check out their Beyond Burger, which was recently featured in Forbes).
Veggie Grill places the focus on vegetables. All the menu items are free of meat, dairy, eggs and other animal products, and therefore, free of antibiotics and hormones. We interviewed Veggie Grill CEO, Steve Heeley, to learn more about what Veggie Grill has to offer healthy business travelers.
Where is Veggie Grill located?
Veggie Grill currently has 28 locations spread out on the West coast from San Diego up to Seattle. We are very excited to announce that we will be expanding into new markets next year.
Do you have any airport locations?
Not currently, but we think Veggie Grill would be a great fit in airports to feed hungry business travelers. This is currently very challenging at most major airports throughout the U.S.
