Veggie Grill builds a vegan empire

The plant-based restaurant offers healthy, affordable and convenient food

Months into the pandemic, most people can agree they have formed new habits, some healthy and some not so healthy. Even before this spring, a lack of access to healthy food was a real problem in the United States. Veggie Grill co-founder and executive chairman T.K. Pillan set out to create a restaurant that offers healthy and delicious food.

Veggie Grill offers curated and convenient plant-based meals along with a welcoming space for customers to learn about veganism. This week on the Retail Gets Real podcast, NRF Managing Editor Kris Stewart and Jill Dvorak, vice president of content and retail strategy, join Pillan to discuss consumers’ growing demand for sustainable plant-based dining options, the value of partnerships, and a behind-the-scenes look at how Pillan is committed to creating a healthier and kinder future.
