First Vegan Fried Chicken Shop Coming To The US
Eat Love, a Latina-owned vegan food company, is set to open a brick-and-mortar fried chicken store in Orange County, California — the first of its kind in the US.
“After what seems to be a lifetime of hard work and determination, we are proud to announce that our brick and mortar is coming to Fountain Valley” Eat Love announced on Instagram.
“From selling cookies at farmers markets, to starting a food truck to now shipping nationwide, we are so grateful for our fans and supporters who have allowed us to turn our dream into reality, spreading the vegan movement the best way we know how”.
Eat Love founder, Lynn Torres, has shared that the location for the shop was chosen in honor of having grown up in the area after her parents emigrated there.
The new shop, which will open on November 22, will sell vegan chicken in KFC-style buckets. Customers will also be able to enjoy a delicious selection of plant-based desserts, such as cookies, brownies, cakes, and ice cream.
From Vegan Diet To Eat Love
Eat Love was born after Lynn and her husband Enrique transitioned to a plant-based diet in 2015. At the time, Enrique had recently been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, and the couples combined weight was 610 pounds. With the help of a vegan diet, the couple lost weight and Enrique reversed his diabetes diagnosis.
They now want to “share their experience with delicious food that heals people and respects animals.”
