Plant Power Fast Food Ready To Sprout In Encinitas | Second San Diego Location Of Vegan Chain Opens This July

June 22, 2017

Plant Power Fast Food, the popular vegan drive-through restaurant that launched its first location in San Diego's Ocean Beach neighborhood last year, will open its second area outpost at 411 Santa Fe Drive in Encinitas this July.

Plant Power Fast Food is the inspiration of Mitch Wallis, who is also the founder of Hillcrest's Evolution Fast Food. The first location of Plant Power Fast Food opened in Ocean Beach in January 2016 and quickly became a popular destination for those craving healthy and plant based versions of traditional fast food offerings. The menu at Plant Power has no meat or animal products and includes dishes like the Buffalo 66 - a vegan take on a spicy Buffalo chicken sandwich; The Rambler burger with crispy onion rings, cheddar 'cheese', barbecue sauce and chipotle aioli; and an assortment of hot dogs, sandwiches, burgers, wraps, salads, smoothies, desserts and more. Plant Power also offers a popular breakfast menu that features bagels and vegan cream cheese, 'egg' sandwiches and more.

The Encinitas branch, which takes over a former Burger King location, will invite customers to order through a drive-up window for car dining or take out, as well as offer indoor counter-service ordering. While the eatery will offer an al-fresco dining area, there will not be an indoor dining room. Plant Power Fast Food is expected to open in Encinitas during the first week of July. 

The owners of Plant Power Fast Food recently launched an online crowd-sourced funding initiative, with the goal to make the company a national chain and open more Plant Power restaurants across the United States in the near future.
