Popular Atlanta-based restaurant Slutty Vegan is now partnering with the “Official Snack of Hip-Hop,” Rap Snacks to create its first all-vegan chip line.
The forthcoming vegan Rap Snacks will be available in two flavors that have not yet been announced and will be distributed to 100,000 stores nationwide, as Veg News reports.
“Rap Snacks is truly excited to partner with Slutty Vegan to bring our first-ever Rap Snacks vegan chip option to our customers,” Rap Snacks Founder and CEO James Lindsay said.
“Slutty Vegan has been immensely influential in introducing veganism to the culturally rich community of Atlanta and beyond. It’s always exciting to join forces with a brand that shares the same underlying mission as we do here at Rap Snacks—to push culture forward through food. This partnership will create limitless possibilities across both the Rap Snacks and Slutty Vegan brands; more importantly, providing communities across the country who have limited access to vegan options, a health-conscious, alternative snack.”
Slutty Vegan’s owner, Pinky Cole initially launched the company as a food truck in August of 2018, but after serving up her provocatively named vegan burgers that drew five-hour lines, she opened her first brick-and-mortar location in Atlanta in January.
Cole purchased property for a second location in Jonesboro and announced a third one in the Old Fourth Ward neighborhood of the popular southern city.
“I am beyond thrilled to team with Rap Snacks to bring the Slutty Vegan lifestyle and culture to people throughout the country with our new vegan chips,” Cole said.
“It is especially important to me that this partnership allows Slutty Vegan the opportunity to introduce healthy vegan options to urban and underserved communities throughout the country. Slutty Vegan and Rap Snacks complement each other perfectly, when someone walks into a Slutty Vegan restaurant they are greeted with hip hop on the stereo and amazing food, and we can’t wait to expand our vegan movement nationwide with our new Rap Snacks line.”
Many celebrities have frequented Slutty Vegan such as director Tyler Perry, political analyst Angela Rye, hip-hop legend Snoop Dogg, and actress Meagan Good.
