Public Vegan QSR Expansions

Globally Local is the First Publicly Traded Vegan Fast Food Company

— April 15, 2021 — Business
Globally Local, a Canadian fast-food chain that's known for its vegan eats, has announced that it will be making its debut on the Toronto Stock Exchange’s Venture Exchange, making it the world's very first publicly traded vegan fast-food company.

The move comes after Globally Local expanded its reach with eight different locations, and announced plans to launch a total of 20 locations throughout North America by 2022. What makes Globally Local stand out from the many other vegan food spots that have launched in response to consumer demand is its affordable pricing. As the company makes all of its own protein and dairy alternatives, it is able to offer its products for low prices, similar to what consumers would find at traditional QSR chains.
