DOWNTOWN — A plant-based burger chain is giving away hundreds of free burgers to celebrate opening its first location in the Loop on Monday.
Vegan, fast-casual restaurant Stand-Up Burgers is giving away a free burger and fries to the first 300 people in line at its new Chicago burger joint, located at 204 N. Wells St.
It’s the first of two Stand-Up Burgers planned for the Chicago area, with the second location opening May 13 at 614 Diversey Parkway in Lakeview.
“There has never been a better time to eat sustainably, and we are excited to introduce Stand-Up Burgers to the Chicago community so they can show love for the planet, animals and themselves, one plant-based burger at a time, said T.K. Pillan, co-founder of parent company Veggie Grill.
Veggie Grill is a plant-based restaurant group that closed its two Chicago locations this spring to relaunch them as Stand-Up Burgers.
The restaurant has a 100-percent plant-based menu with dishes ranging from the BBQ Bacon Cheeseburger to the Freebird Crispy Chicken Sandwich or loaded “Save The Animal-Style” Fries, according to a press release.
More information, including the full menu, can be found on the restaurant’s website.
