Leading vegan restaurant chain Vegan Junk Food Bar is looking for franchisees to bring the VJFB brand to all major cities around the world
Popular Amsterdam vegan chain Vegan Junk Food Bar (VJFB) opened as a small restaurant in Amsterdam West in 2017 with a big mission – to make the world go vegan.
Now the brand has announced big plans to expand the plant-based eatery across the globe and is on the hunt for franchisees to help it achieve its mission.
From today, Vegan Junk Food Bar will be available for franchising as part of its aim to “expand its presence internationally with one mission: a global #vegantakeover!”

In order to bring the brand to as many cities as possible, VJFB is looking for “qualified, well-capitalized foodservice franchisees with multiple units and solid practical experience in the foodservice segment” to roll out the brand internationally.
According to the company, the ideal candidate will have a track record of collaboration with international brands as distributor, partner, agent, franchisee or licensee and a strong financial background with knowledge of the local consumer market.
Candidates must be able to show a proven track record and success in the hospitality industry and the desire to develop at least 10 to 100 VJFB stores in their market area in the coming years.
The company also says that having a passion for veganism and plant-based food is a “big plus”.
There are already four Vegan Junk Food Bar restaurants in Amsterdam and one in Rotterdam, with the first international branch set to open later this year in Barcelona.
The company also recently confirmed its sixth Dutch branch will be opening in September at a prime location in the northern and very student-friendly city of Groningen.
VJDB also recently debuted its new vegan ice cream concept, Buba Cream, at its store in Amsterdam East. The ice cream kiosk gives customers a chance to treat their tastebuds to some bold new flavours with a range of unusual plant-based ice creams on offer.
