Soupergirl and PLNT Burger, leaders in the plant-based food scene, are teaming up for a vegan version of an all-time favorite: grilled cheese and tomato soup.
Two leaders in DC’s plant-based food scene have teamed up to create a vegan version of an all-time favorite: grilled cheese and tomato soup.
Soupergirl who makes a range of vegetable soups Run in many grocery stores since 2008, has teamed up with burger chef Spike Mendelsohn to create the combo at his Plant-based PLNT burger Locations from October 24th.
The creamy tomato and basil soup is paired with a grilled cheese sandwich for $ 7.50.
âThe grilled cheese is one of the top off the menu requests from our PLNT family, and especially from children.
Mendelsohn, known for his meaty burgers at Good Stuff Eatery restaurants, opened the first PLNT burger in a Whole Foods Market store in downtown Silver Spring in 2019.
There are now nine locations, all in Whole Foods stores, including one in the Philadelphia suburbs.
Soupergirl was founded in 2008 by former stand-up comedian Sara Polon and her mother Marilyn.
It sells its selection of soups and gazpachos directly online to consumers through nationwide delivery, as well as local delivery and pick-up, and at retailers such as Whole Foods, Costco, Lidl, Wegmans and Giant Food stores across the Central Atlantic and the Northeast.
Mendelsohn and Polon have something else in common.
A year ago, Soupergirl received a $ 2 million expansion investment from investors including Honest Tea founder and Beyond Meat board member Seth Goldman.
Goldman joined Mendelsohn last year as a co-founder and investor in PLNT Burger.
