Long-Vacant All You Knead Storefront Leased To Singapore-Based 'VeganBurg'
Published on January 10, 2015
Local real estate agent John Polyzoides announced late Friday afternoon that the long-closed, long-anticipated restaurant space available at 1466 Haight Street, formerly All You Knead, has been leased to Singapore-based vegan fast food brand VeganBurg.
If it moves forward as planned, the lease would end the space's two-year vacancy stint. The storefront has been vacant since All You Knead closed suddenly in early in 2013, ostensibly for a renovation, and came on and off the market with rents in the neighborhood of $12k a month.
VeganBurg has four existing locations, all in Singapore, and is thus exempt from the city's stringent formula retail limitations, which only consider stores with 11 or more locations worldwide as formula retail.
Founded in 2010, the restaurant chain seeks to "break the stereotype of burgers" and push the envelope on what vegan burgers could look and taste like. Per the company history, "Our vision is to bring the burgers of the new generation to the table. Our focus has always been making a plant-based burger inspiring and exciting."
Menus at the Singapore VeganBurg outposts include a selection of vegan burgers like the "char-grilled satay", "mustang relish" and "creamy shrooms", plus sides like "old-school hot dogs", vegan franks, and "seaweed fries".
There's no word currently on a scheduled opening date, but we'll keep you posted as we hear more about VeganBurg's planned move into the neighborhood.
