New Outpost To Serve Iconic Vegan Burgers, Sandwiches, Sides & Desserts for Takeout & Delivery – Available for Lunch, Dinner & Late Night
DALLAS (FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE) – Pinky Cole, the visionary, founder and CEO behind acclaimed burger joint Slutty Vegan, is growing her vegan empire yet again with a new restaurant in Dallas, Texas. Opening this summer, the first brick-and-mortar location in the region will be located at 2707 Main Street in downtown Dallas. Open from noon-9pm Tuesday-Thursday and noon-11pm on weekends, the 2,500 square foot space will offer a counter-service lineup of their renowned takes on indulgent favorites including:
- ONE NIGHT STAND – a burger loaded with vegan bacon, vegan cheese, caramelized onions, lettuce, tomato & Slut Sauce on a vegan Hawaiian bun
- FUSSY HUSSY – a burger loaded with pickles, vegan cheese, caramelized onions, lettuce, tomato & Slut Sauce on a vegan Hawaiian bun
- HOLLYWOOD HOOKER – a vegan chopped Philly with jalapeños, bell peppers and caramelized onions, vegan provolone, lettuce, tomato, ketchup & vegan mayo on a hoagie roll
This outpost will be the brand’s fourth opening of 2023, following a kiosk in Atlanta’s Truist Park, and new restaurants in Harlem, New York and at Georgia Tech’s campus. The Dallas restaurant will be located in Deep Ellum, a neighborhood with strong cultural roots as one of the first commercial districts in the city for African-Americans, bringing to life Slutty Vegan’s philosophy of supporting historically Black neighborhoods.
“Dallas has been asking, and we’re so excited to deliver,” says Cole. “We’re bringing the heat just in time for summer!”
Since the brand’s genesis in 2018, Cole has built a game-changing empire that’s dedicated to reinventing vegan food culture, where vegans and meat-eaters alike can break free from kale and quinoa salads. Slutty Vegan’s crave-worthy, indulgent menus and joyful customer interactions draw locals and visitors to eagerly wait in now-famous lines down the block for vegan burgers, sandwiches and more. Sluttified fans include celebrities Snoop Dogg, Jermaine Dupri, Taraji P. Henson, Tyler Perry, Queen Latifah and many more. Slutty Vegan has ten existing brick-and-mortar locations, including metro-Atlanta stores in the Edgewood, Jonesboro, Duluth and West View neighborhoods, on-campus at Georgia Tech, inside the famed Truist Park Stadium and outposts in Athens, Georgia, Birmingham, Alabama, Harlem and Brooklyn, New York.
This past winter, the famed entrepreneur expanded her flavorful footprint beyond the restaurant realm with the debut of her one-of-a-kind cookbook, Eat Plants, B*tch, bringing all the Slutty tips and tricks to kitchens nationwide. The collection of 91 vegan recipes for undeniably delicious meals earned top recognition with a NAACP Image Award nomination for Outstanding Instructional Literary Work.
Last year, the booming brand celebrated a $25M Series A fundraising round that resulted in Slutty Vegan’s impressive $100M valuation that was dually backed by Enlightened Hospitality Investments (co-founded by Danny Meyer of Union Square Hospitality Group) and New Voices Fund (led by billionaire entrepreneur & ESSENCE Ventures CEO Richelieu Dennis).
Pinky Cole has been nationally recognized by acclaimed publications including The New York Times, The Washington Post, USA Today, Forbes, People, Wall Street Journal, Southern Living, Travel + Leisure, Food & Wine and was recently featured on the front covers of ESSENCE and Inc. Her debut cookbook Eat Plants, B*tch, a collection of ninety-one delicious, guilt-free, plant-based recipes is now available wherever books are sold. Slutty Vegan was awarded “Best Burger” by VegOut Magazine’s 2022 VegOut Awards, and Pinky has been named to Restaurant Hospitality’s 2021 Power List, Forbes Next 1000, Entrepreneur Magazine’s Top 100 Powerful Women in Business List, LA Wire Influential Women of 2020, PETA’s 2021 Most Beautiful Vegan Celebrities List and Atlanta Business Chronicle’s 40 Under 40 List.
