Lewis Hamilton-backed vegan fast-food chain Neat Burger has announced plans to open seven new sites in London.
Vegan fast-food chain Neat Burger – backed by Lewis Hamilton – made serious waves upon its launch in 2019.
Now, Neat Burger aims to open seven new dine-in sites across London, with a further 20 delivery-only kitchens to follow.
The new locations will include Victoria, Finsbury Park and Ealing, in addition to two unconfirmed major shopping centres.
Moreover, the chain hopes to expand into a national launch that would see Neat Burgers popping up in cities across the UK.
In January, Neat Burger debuted their answer to the iconic McDonalds Filet O’ Fish burger, the aptly named Filet-no-Fish.
Made from sustainably sourced jackfruit (a popular fish alternative) the Filet-no-Fish is coated in crispy breadcrumbs and is layered with vegan tartare sauce and fresh crunchy lettuce in a soft flour bun.
Neat Burger has been going from strength to strength, and we can’t wait for the plant-based revolution to begin!
‘High demand for a totally plant-based offering’
Speaking to the Evening Standard, Neat Burger director Zack Bish explained:
“A few years ago, most people would not have been that into the idea of a plant-based burger restaurant, and restaurants had one option on the menu to cater for vegetarians,”
“The fact that there is now such a high demand for a totally plant-based offering is really encouraging and exciting to us. Even meat-eaters are going out of their way to choose plant-based options as the awareness of the effect it has on the world grows and grows.
“A lot of operators are nervous about a post-Covid world, and everything ‘going remote’, but we think people are excited about getting out and eating together again.”
Neat Burger is hoping to open all seven new sites by the end of the year, and we can’t wait for lockdown to be over so we can go and tuck in!
