A fast food drive-thru is set to open in California’s Long Beach on September 1.

Plant Power Fast Food – which opened its original San Diego branch in 2016 – will offer diners traditional fare including vegan milkshakes, burgers, buffalo chicken and chili cheese fries.

‘Secret mission’

Zach Vouga, VP of Operations, said: “Our secret mission has always been to turn more people on to a vegan diet. It’s obviously the wave of the future.

“But we totally understand that diet is such a personal issue and that each person goes at his or her own pace. So the Plant Power Fast Food brand is really all about turning people on to how delicious plant-based food can be.

“And we’re doing it in a way that’s welcoming and fun. Our brand isn’t preachy; the food itself is the message.”
