Pioneers in the plant-based fast food market, The Vurger Co, launching first permanent site in Shoreditch on 12 March

Hugely popular plant-based burger company, The Vurger Co, is thrilled to announce the launch of its first permanent site in Shoreditch, East London, on 12th March 2018.

After a number of overwhelmingly well-received pop-ups both at festivals and throughout London, along with an incredibly successful crowdfunding campaign last year, the company is excited to turn their offering into a permanent fixture in this vibrant area of London.

Offering burgers as they should be – fresh but indulgent - the new site will feature The Vurger Co’s full menu, including their best-selling Tabasco Auburger, made from aubergines, chickpeas, red onion and vegan cheese, as well as the company’s infamous mac’n’cheese and shakes. Other soul satisfying highlights from the menu will include the mouth-watering Classic, the Mexican and the MLT, packed full of baked mushrooms and rocket and topped with walnut and sundried tomato paste.

Rachel Hugh, founder of The Vurger Co announces: ''We couldn't be happier, we have lived in East London for over 10 years and we adore its vibe and authenticity. We have traded in the area for 2 years through various pop ups, events and festivals so moving into Shoreditch was the perfect match for The Vurger Co. We just can't wait to get started and continue to revolutionise fast food through the power of plants!”

Capacity at the Shoreditch site will be around 30 and there will be both indoor and outdoor seating. In addition to their food menu, the site will also be serving Canyon Coffee, an array of beers and wines and a selection of soft drinks. All packaging, including straws, used by The Vurger Co is compostable.
