Six-time Formula One World Champion Lewis Hamilton’s vegan burger chain, Neat Burger, just opened eight new locations, expanding its delivery service across London.
The coronavirus pandemic has forced restaurants, eateries, and other establishments across the U.K. to temporarily stop table service in order to help stop the spread of coronavirus.
As a result of the outbreak, the burger chain is currently providing delivery-only service. The chain announced the new locations on social media. It said it now offers delivery service to the eight new areas.
“Bringing Neat Burger to a little more of London, day by day. New locations launch today including; Bethnal Green, City, Hackney, Haggerston, Shoreditch, Mike End, Wapping and Whitechapel,” the chain captioned on Instagram.
According to the chain’s Instagram, it also delivers to the following areas: Balham, Battersea, Bloomsbury, Brixton, Chelsea, Clapham, Covent Garden, Fitzrovia, Marylebone, Mayfair, Soho, Victoria, and Vauxhall.
Neat Burger: Good For The Planet
Dubbed the “first, plant-based sustainable burger chain of its kind,” Neat Burger opened its first location off Regent Street in London last summer.
While it has ambitious plans to expand globally by opening 14 franchises in the next 24 months, the chain says being kind to the planet is a major goal.
“I’m very passionate about being kinder to our world and also really respect Neat Burger’s commitment to more ethical practices and supporting small businesses, so this is something I’m also really proud to support,” said Hamilton in a statement.
Neat Burger’s co-founder, Tommaso Chiabra shares the same sentiment.
“The meat industry is the biggest contributor to greenhouse emissions and its environmental impact is no longer sustainable together with the growth of population,” Chiabra said.
“Neat Burger aims to disrupt the non-sustainable food industry and become a force for good,” Chiabra added.
The chain offers “unique patties” that were specially formulated by its team of chefs in collaboration with Beyond Meat. It says its “delicious meat-free dishes are more sustainable, healthier, and ethical.”
Neat Burger also sells Just Water, an eco-conscious brand launched by Jaden Smith in 2018. The spring water is sustainably sourced and packaged in a plant-based bottle.
