The brother and sister duo behind the Herbivorous Butcher are opening a 100 percent vegan fried chicken restaurant in Minneapolis.

Following the success of the vegan butcher business, the pair plan to open Herbie Butcher’s Fried Chicken later this spring.

On the menu will be buckets of fried chicken, mac and cheese, and fried chicken biscuit sandwiches – all plant-based. 

‘Our mission has always been to try to save the world by bridging the gap for omnivores that haven’t quite made the full jump to veganism yet’, co-founder Kale Walch, said in a statement sent to Plant Based News.

“By making vegan meats and cheeses that are even better than what they were used to, we start to accomplish just that. 

“Herbie Butcher’s Fried Chicken continues our brand’s mission by making a fried chicken that won’t leave anyone questioning if a plant-based lifestyle is possible without sacrificing the foods we love.”

The Herbivorous Butcher

The siblings opened The Herbivorous Butcher in 2016, and have since faced a legal battle over its name.

The exact opening date has not yet been confirmed.
