This fast food drive-thru in Long Beach is 100% vegan

LONG BEACH, Calif. (KABC) -- When most people think of vegan food, leafy greens and tofu probably come to mind. Long Beach fast food drive-thru, Plant Power Fast Food, wants to change that.

"Vegan food is stigmatized," said co-founder of Plant Power Fast Food, Zach Vouga. "When you come in here, what you're going to find isn't a "meat is murder" vegan restaurant, but you find burgers, fries and shakes made entirely from plants."

Although the drive-thru isn't operating yet, the San Diego-based fast food restaurant officially opened its doors on June 28 at their newest location on Pacific Coast Highway and Clark Avenue.

"Fast food is really important because we're Americans," said Vouga. "We're busy and we have families to feed. We're on the go and cornered into making decisions like going to McDonald's or Jack in the Box."

Some menu items at Plant Power Fast Food include The Classic 'Bacon Cheeseburger,' Buffalo Wings, Old Fashioned 'Milkshake,' and loaded Iconic Fries. The restaurant serves breakfast, too.

Plant Power Fast Food is located at 5095 E. Pacific Coast Hwy, Long Beach, CA.
