Vegan Restaurant By Chloe. To Open In Canada
Vegan restaurant chain By Chloe. is set to open its first Canadian location in Toronto.
The Toronto branch — opened with the help of $31 million in funding the chain received last year — will be a replica of the its flagship location, which is New York.
The chain aims to serve up healthy, plant-based versions of conventional fast food, offering dishes such as salads, burgers, and pasta, as well as brunch and smoothies. The Toronto location will feature a number of items exclusive to Canada.
The restaurant is set to open in September, at 3401 Dufferin Street.
Chloe Coscarelli, vegan chef and one of the founders of the chain, was ousted by the chain for what was dubbed “gross negligence” in 2017.
Co-founder Samantha Wasser, who is not vegan, was central to suspicions about the chain beginning to serve meat after Coscarelli left. However, Wasser was adamant that By Chloe. would remain vegan. As of today, it is still entirely plant based.
Coscarelli remains an active member of the vegan and plant-based community, and continues to publish recipes and cookbooks.
