Veggie Grill and Sodexo to offer plant-based meals at East Coast universities
Veggie Grill has partnered with Sodexo Inc to push plant-based meals to university campuses across the East Coast.
Veggie Grill has opened 32 locations in California, Oregon, Washington and Illinois. The brand will launch in East Coast markets, including New York City this year.
Veggie Grill CEO Steve Heeley said:
"We have strategically opened several of our restaurant locations nearby or on college campuses, including UCLA, UC Berkeley and University of Washington,"
"College students are at the forefront of the plant-based movement and they are more mindful about what they eat. We look forward to partnering with Sodexo to serve our plant-based food to a wider audience of university students and faculty."
Sodexo expects to start rolling out Veggie Grill at select college and university locations during the 2019-2020 school year.
