Do you remember when we brought news to you about Slutty Vegan’s Pinky Cole supporting Clark Atlanta graduates with the ability to launch a Limited Liability Corporation business of their own? In addition, it was only a few months ago that Slutty Vegan succeeded in raising $25m in a Series A funding round, which Cole always intended to use to expand into other states around the country.
Well, Cole and her team have been super busy again, this time using some of that funding in planning the opening of a new burger joint in Charlotte, North Carolina.

But why Charlotte? Well, for Cole, the city gives off a similar energy to Atlanta, her hometown – she particularly felt the vibe when attending the Eat Black Charlotte Food & Culture Festival with the Slutty Vegan food truck selling out of all its supplies.
As expected, the menu at the Charlotte Slutty Vegan burger bar will follow a similar pattern to that of the Atlanta venue. We particularly love the menu, with offerings such as Fussy Hussy, and Super Slut, which is a burger loaded with guacamole, jalapeños, vegan cheese, caramelised onions, lettuce, tomato, and the venue’s famous Slut Sauce. Grab a side of fries, and you may even be tempted by one of the desserts on offer, such as the sweet potato pie.
There are currently other locations on Cole’s radar, including Brooklyn, Alabama, and Columbas, Georgia, so we can yet be sure of the official opening date for Charlotte. What we do know is that, as ever with her positive ethos, Cole will use this opportunity to create more job openings and engage with the community around her. It’s what Slutty Vegan does best, so we can’t wait to see what’s in store.
