The Herbivorous Butcher Is Opening a Vegan Fried Chicken Restaurant
The first vegan butcher shop in the US is opening a new fast casual vegan fried chicken restaurant this spring!
Originally launched in January 2016, The Herbivorous Butcher has been serving up plant-based deli meat and cheeses in Northeast Minneapolis and has inspired a movement of other plant-based foodies to open up similar butcher establishments across the country. With the shop’s success, brother-sister duo Kale and Aubry Walch continue their expansion this spring as they open their newest venture—Herbie Butcher’s Fried Chicken.
Co-founder Kale Walch said, “Our mission has always been to try to save the world by bridging the gap for omnivores [who] haven’t quite made the full jump to veganism yet. By making vegan meats and cheeses that are even better than what they were used to, we start to accomplish just that. Herbie Butcher’s Fried Chicken continues our brand’s mission by making a fried chicken that won’t leave anyone questioning if a plant-based lifestyle is possible without sacrificing the foods we love.”
The new fully-vegan fried chicken joint will feature mouthwatering fried chicken buckets, savory fried chicken biscuit sandwiches, warm and gooey mac ‘n’ cheese, and of course, perfectly sweet milkshakes and malts. Comfort food heaven right in the heart of South Minneapolis!
Herbie Butcher’s Fried Chicken will be located at 735 East 48th Street, Minneapolis, MN 55417.
