QSR chain Burger King has opened world’s first plant-based restaurant in Cologne, Germany this week.
As per reports, the burger chain has opened this outlet for one week amid surging mainstream demand for plant-based food as more and more people are opting flexitarian eating habits for environmental, ethical and health reasons.
The restaurant is opened from June 7 to June 11, and has partnered with The Vegetarian Butcher to serve meatless Whoppers, vegan nuggets.
“The news you’ve been waiting for: world’s first plant-based Burger King restaurant has now officially opened in Germany and it’s powered by The Vegetarian Butcher. Food Revolution at its finest – so you can enjoy all the iconic meals, without having to sacrifice a thing,” shared Vegetarian Butcher a subsidiary of Unilever in a social media post.
The exclusive Burger King outlet will also be serving dairy-free vegan ice creams made by Ben & Jerry’s to round it off.
According to the Burger King Germany website, the restaurant is not only aimed at providing more options for herbivores, but is targeted at the rising group of flexitarians and encouraging more meat-eaters to try out vegan options. It pledges to ensure that “everyone gets their money’s worth with our exclusive plant-based” menu.
