Plant Power Fast Food’s entirely vegan menu debuted in San Diego’s Ocean Beach back in 2016, with a second location opening in Encinitas a year later. The chain has new locations coming to nearby Redlands and Long Beach later this year, and its most significant feature is the drive-thru that serves animal-free breakfast sandwiches, burgers, and shakes.
According to co-founder Zach Vouga, Plant Power Fast Food just signed leases in both cities, and construction is underway. The future 2,100 square foot Long Beach location will be in the former University Burgers space at Clark and Pacific Coast Highway. Plant Power’s second Southern California store is moving into the Redlands Packing House District, a fairly new dining and retail destination.
LongBeachize’s Brian Addison first noticed Plant Power Fast Food’s expansion. There’s a car-centric culture around Plant Power Fast Food. The Ocean Beach location has a drive up where diners can park and order and eat in their cars, along with drive-thru service in Encinitas. Vouga tells Eater that Long Beach is an ideal location, and that drive-thrus are part of the company’s long-term plan.
