An Italian vegan burger chain is set to open up to 45 UK outlets, according to reports.
Flower Burger, which was founded in 2015, currently has sites across Italy, France, and the Netherlands.
It has signed a master franchise agreement which will see the new sites open in ‘key cities’ across the UK within the next decade.
The chain, which is aimed at both vegans and omnivores, offers a range of burgers, on buns dyed with food-based colorings, including a turmeric yellow bun and cherry-dyed red option.
According to the brand: ” In October 2015, Flower Burger was born in Milan as the first gourmet vegan burger restaurant in Italy: a new destination for burger lovers, vegans and simply those who cannot resist the trends and want to try new flavors.
“A year after its opening, Flower Burger doubled [its capacity] in Milan, and expanded to Rome, Monza, and Turin.
“The bread is homemade, just like our sauces and patties. From a pink cherry-based bread through an iconic black bun, to the turmeric-based yellow one. The restaurant has colorful and kaleidoscopic colored walls of Yellow Submarine, mixed with natural wood furnishings and enameled iron.”
