Situated on the grounds of a former McDonald’s lot, this Hollywood location is making waves not only for its menu but also for being the first in the chain to feature a drive-thru. Hart, in a recent news release, expressed his excitement about bringing Hart House to Hollywood, emphasizing the brand’s commitment to offering a fresh and appealing alternative within the fast-food landscape.

“At Hart House, we are in the business of making people feel good, and I’m so proud of how fast we are growing,” Hart remarked. He envisions a future where Hart House restaurants are scattered across the nation, contributing to the evolving narrative of plant-based fast food.

The menu, boasting thoughtfully curated vegan options, showcases the brand’s dedication to providing health-conscious choices. From plant-based main courses to wholesome side snacks, Hart House aims to redefine the fast-food experience. Andy Hooper, the CEO of Hart House, sees their mission as creating a sustainable restaurant brand grounded in both high-quality employment opportunities and objectively delicious plant-based fare.

This expansion comes at a time when the demand for healthier fast-food alternatives is on the rise. Hart House, having launched just last year, has quickly become a player in this space with two existing locations in Los Angeles. The decision to set up shop on a former McDonald’s lot symbolizes a shift toward more sustainable and conscious culinary choices in Hollywood.
