Pinky Cole had a desire to make the meatless lifestyle sexy. Cole, a graduate of Clark-Atlanta University, opened the first Slutty Vegan restaurant in Atlanta in 2019.
The restaurant has since become a national sensation.
On Jan. 13, Slutty Vegan celebrated its one-year anniversary.

The popular food brand gave away free menu items during the afternoon and customers got a chance to mingle with celebrities such as actress, Keshia Knight-Pulliam; television host/news reporter, AJ Calloway; and social media personality, Pretty Vee.
“Over the past year, we have impacted Atlanta in a huge way with our fast-casual junk food that is completely plant-based,” Cole said. “Every day, people are standing in line for hours to experience the juicy goodness of plant-based burgers, and this is our way of showing our gratitude.”
Fans of Slutty Vegan include Tyler Perry, Will Packer, Tiffany Haddish, Taraji P. Henson, Iyanla Vanzant, Keisha Lance-Bottoms, Porsha Williams, Meagan Goode, Cory Booker, Jidenna, Lena Waithe and more.
