Pinky Cole, the founder and CEO behind the burger joint Slutty Vegan, announces a new Slutty Vegan location will open in Brooklyn, New York on Sunday, September 18, marking the brand’s first in the Northeast region. Located at 690 Fulton Street, the restaurant will serve a carry-out menu featuring vegan burgers, sandwiches and more made with plant-based meat. The new outpost will be the brand’s seventh brick-and-mortar, as the company continues to expand its Slutty footprint across the country.
“I was taught that if you can make it in New York City, you can make it anywhere,” said Jason Crain, Slutty Vegan President in a statement. “We are proud to open in Brooklyn. We know that with New Yorkers on our side, we will be able to spread our mission all over the world.”
The full menu which includes the ONE NIGHT STAND, a burger loaded with vegan bacon, vegan cheese, caramelized onions, lettuce, tomato & Slut Sauce on a vegan Hawaiian bun and the FUSSY HUSSY, a burger loaded with pickles, vegan cheese, caramelized onions, lettuce, tomato & Slut Sauce on a vegan Hawaiian bun, plus options like the HEAUX BOY featuring vegan shrimp tossed in a New Orleans style batter, loaded with lettuce, tomato, pickle & Slut Sauce on a vegan Hawaiian bun and the HOLLYWOOD HOOKER, a vegan chopped Philly with jalapeños, bell peppers and caramelized onions, vegan provolone, lettuce, tomato, ketchup & vegan mayo on a hoagie roll, will be available for takeout and delivery.
“This is like a dream come true,” said Cole. “I remember working in New York City following my dream, and now almost a decade later, my dream is following me. I am beyond excited to finally sluttify Brooklyn, New York!”
In May 2022, the brand celebrated a $25M Series A fundraising round that resulted in Slutty Vegan’s $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).
