Frankie & Benny’s has collabed with three of the UK’s leading plant-based brands for its ‘big vegan takeover’
Frankie & Benny’s has unveiled the launch of its ‘big vegan takeover’ to encourage more people to eat less meat.
The Italian-American restaurant already offers more than 20 vegan dishes, but has recently witnessed an ‘increased demand’ in plant-based food.
As a result, it has partnered with three of the UK’s leading plant-based brands: Biffs, THIS, and OGGS.
‘The best of both worlds’
“This Veganuary our vision is to show the UK that comfort food and vegan dishes aren’t mutually exclusive– at Frankie & Benny’s you can have the best of both worlds!” Frankie & Benny’s Sasha Storey said, in a statement sent to Vegan Food & Living.
“We’ve chosen some of our most loved dishes, and challenged three exciting vegan partners, Biff’s™, THIS™ and OGGS®, to give a new, plant-based spin on them.
“So, whether you’re 100% meat-free, or just looking to make the odd sustainable switch, you can find familiar favourites at Frankie & Benny’s all this January.”

New vegan options at Frankie & Benny’s
The new menu features a Biff’s Parmigiana Hoagie (£11.90), consisting of smashed wings in a baked garlic ciabatta, topped with Napoletana sauce, crispy THIS™ Isn’t Bacon, vegan cheddar sauce and fresh basil, served with skin-on fries.
Customers can also order a BBQ Spicy Banana Blossom Burger (£14.60): a crispy vegan patty topped with vegan cheddar sauce, BBQ sauce, vegan mayo, lettuce and red onion. This dish is also served with skin-on fries.
Lastly, the chain has debuted its OGGS Vegan Carbonara (£12.90) -a ‘silky garlic creamy sauce tossed with fettuccine & mushrooms, topped with THIS™ Isn’t Bacon & parsley’.
Making plant-based mainstream
“We’re on a mission to make delicious plant-based eggs mainstream, so we couldn’t be prouder to work with an institution like Frankie & Benny’s on the ultimate team up with the Vegan Carbonara,” said Hannah Carter, Founder & CEO of OGGS.
“A delicious dinner that works towards a kinder, more sustainable future is the ultimate Veganuary treat!”
Biff’s co-founder Biff Bloom-Burrows added: “With it’s tender flavour-packed jackfruit centre and deliciously crispy panko crumb, our hand-formed Crispy Fried Jackfruit is the perfect addition to any sandwich.
“But, Frankie & Benny’s have taken it to the next level with this Parmigiana Hoagie. We’re hyped to be collaborating with them on such an incredible dish for Veganuary”.
