Globally-Local

Recently, the Canadian fast-food vegan restaurant chain––Globally Local––announced that it will be expanding its efforts to Windsor. The vegan drive-thru will be opening its fourth location in Windsor, Ontario by next spring.

The operation has already begun with construction initiated on the brand new, 1,200 square foot restaurant building, which is being designed similarly to its popular location in Toronto. The building will be capable of seating 28 while offering a completely vegan menu that’s complete with breakfast, lunch, and dinner items on the menu.

Popular menu items include breakfast sandwiches, chicken sandwiches, cheeseburgers, fries, onion rings, milkshakes, and a wide variety of options you’d typically find on a drive-thru menu.

Aside from running a food truck as well, the founder of Globally Local––James McInnes––also launched two locations in London (Ontario) in 2017, one of them featuring the world’s first-ever 24-hour vegan drive-thru restaurant type.

In an interview with plant-based magazine VegNews, founder McInnes said, “We are excited to bring vegan fast food to the United States and our Windsor location is the start of that push forward.”

Starting as soon as early 2020, McInnes has plans to expand Globally Local beyond Canada with locations in the United States east coast.
