In the fall of 2017 (prior to me being vegan), I was getting frustrated watching Jen, who has been vegan since 2012, frantically Google search for what she could eat when we would be out. This was especially the worst when we would have family in town and choose a restaurant last minute. She tried to be calm but you could feel a little panic in her.
I thought there should be a resource for vegans to see what was vegan-friendly at restaurants, specifically popular chain restaurants throughout the United States.
Well, there wasn’t.
So… in 2018, we created VeggL.
In 2020, after years of researching, compiling vegan guides and adding additional categories (airports, sports arenas/stadiums and theme parks), we proudly launched our VeggL App.
The App currently shows vegan options at over 350 popular chain restaurants, airports, sports arenas/stadiums, and theme parks. We continue to add new locations each month.
Our goal is to make eating out as a vegan MUCH LESS FRUSTRATING!
The App is FREE to download and use to access all of our Cheat Sheet Guides!
If you love the app, consider upgrading to our PRO version.
You can try the PRO version FREE for 30 days. Upgrading to PRO removes ALL ads from each guide, speeds up the loading speed and allows you to quickly read thru the guide.
Finally, and to be completely honest, the $2 we receive each month (or $20 for the year) from our PRO Members helps pay the bills to allow us to continue adding and updating our vegan guides.
VeggL App FAQ
How Often is the App Updated?
The app is updated in two different ways.
The first is when restaurants make changes and/or updates to their menus. As soon as we become aware of these changes we update the app asap. We become aware by either our research, news releases or a lot of times from our VeggL users. We have a great community here!
The second is when we add new locations to the App. These new locations could be restaurants, but also airports and stadiums.
The VeggL App is updated in real-time. When we update or add a new guide, you see it the moment we hit, “Save.”
Why is the PRO Membership a Recurring Subscription? Why can’t I just buy it with a one-time payment?
We serve up ZERO ads, ZERO paid listings and ZERO sponsored listings to our PRO Members. It is literally ONLY the information you want when you’re trying to decide what you can order. We are planning on running and continuing to improve VeggL for the long haul. Without a recurring subscription model this would just not be feasible.
The truth of the matter is, running an app (along with a website) is not cheap. Between hosting fees and app fees, it can really add up. This is also not to mention the amount of time we log putting all of this info together. What we are asking for in return–if you really enjoy the app–is the price of a cheap cup of coffee. In return, we promise to continue making the VeggL App the resource that I wish Jen had had.
Finally, if you know someone else who might really enjoy our App, please consider sharing it with them!
