A new vegan fast-food is coming to the North Quarter
A popular plant-based fast food restaurant is set to make its northern debut in Manchester later this month. Already well established in London and Brighton, The Vurger Co. will open in the heart of Manchester’s North End on April 23.
The concept is driven by a mission to revolutionize fast food through the power of plants, and diners can expect dishes using only 100% plant-based and ethically sourced products. Taking this mission one step further, all packaging used is made from plants and is fully compostable, with the guarantee that nothing goes to landfill.
Plant-based stars of the show include burgers such as the New York Melt, which features a Beyond Meat patty topped with vegan double cheese, pickles, tomato and homemade burger sauce, and Buffalo Vurger, a patty from crispy chicken dipped in tangy buffalo sauce, topped with vegan mozzarella, pickles, crispy onions and homemade bacon.
The restaurant, part of the new Transmission House mixed-use development, is the group’s largest project to date, seating over 50 people. As is the case with its other locations, the restaurant will only operate on site.
“It’s a really exciting time for us at the Vurger Co,” said co-founder Rachel Hugh. “We have worked very hard to establish ourselves in London and Brighton and look forward to being part of the thriving food and dining scene in Manchester, one of our favorite cities.
“Customers can expect amazing plant-based dishes filled with fun and delicious texture and flavor.”
Rich Oliver, senior asset manager at Fabrix, the developer behind Transmission house, added: “The Vurger Co’s decision to sign with Transmission House adds a new destination to the vibrant dining scene in the North Quarter, which has long been the home to music and fashion. The Vurger Co. joins renowned piano maker Bechstein in Transmission House, making it a new center of tradition and innovation in the heart of the neighborhood.
The Vurger Co. started life as a market stall in North London in 2016, since then it has grown from pop-ups and festivals to physical stores with locations in Shoreditch, Canary Wharf, Brighton and now Manchester.
The new site will open on April 23.
