January Vegan Vibes

Greta Thun-burger

VEGAN VIBES THROUGHOUT JANUARY

Grab a little bit of fried realness…

As you know here at Yard & Coop, we’re all about bringing you the best product with the biggest smile. As we enter 2020, we carry on supporting those who want to eat better meat but also look to champion those who want less.

That’s right, the home of buttermilk fried chicken is celebrating Veganuary 2020 with the launch of 3 sensational specials… Let the plant times role.

Not ones to compromise on quality, we’ve worked carefully to pick a plant-based alternative to satisfy meat-eaters and vegans alike. We will be serving up credible and authentic vegan fried chicken coated in our secret recipe crumb then deep fried to golden perfection; it’s a little bit Yard & Plant magic.

 

What to expect?

Devour your vegan fried chicken feast with skin on fries or salad, a pickle and sweetcorn relish and your choice of sauce.

Or why not take on the rebellion and tackle a Greta Thun-burger? A vegan fried chicken burger stacked with not so chicken tot patty, hash brown, vegan cheese, rainbow slaw and lime salsa. Smothered in garlic mayo and siracha sauces and served with skin on fries.

 

Like it hot, quick and cheap? Grab our Gard ‘N Coop fries lunch special to dine in or takeaway Monday – Friday between 12-5pm.

 

As a chicken shop we know we’re not changing the world, but we hope this is just the veganning of doing our bit.

Check out our vegan fried chicken menu from 1st January at a Coop near you.
