As plant-based diets continue to increase in popularity, LEON is responding with the launch of its biggest ever vegan menu on Thursday 13 June, to coincide with its 15th birthday.
New options include Jack Wings – cheesy bites filled with pulled jackfruit in a gluten-free crumb – and Coco Whip – a vegan 99 made with coconut soft-serve ice cream, in flavours such as caramel and cacao, chocolate ruby ripple, and passionfruit, lemongrass and pomegranate.
There’s also the addition of the vegan birthday cupcake, with all proceeds going to the LEON Foundation.
The new menu launch follows an increase in vegetarian and vegan sales for the naturally fast food restaurant, from 46% and 34% respectively in January 2018, to 64% and 55% in January 2019.
“Since we opened our doors 15 years ago, we have continued to innovate, providing new and exciting ways for everyone to eat fresh, natural and seasonal food,” comments LEON co-founder and CEO John Vincent.
“Over that time, we have constantly evolved and this latest menu shake up marks an important step for us – we know plant based eating is better for body and planet, but we want to make plant-based options the tastiest choice too.”
