Popular vegan pickups
As of late September, both Detroit Vegan Soul restaurants – 8029 Agnes Street and 19614 Grand River – were officially open for curbside pick-up. “From a business standpoint, it’s great to be able to have both locations open and running,” said Kirsten Ussery, co-owner and general manager. “Also we know that our customers missed us...both of our restaurants are located within communities, within neighborhoods. So it feels good from both of those standpoints.” Their Grand River location – which was open prior to September – has had basically the same menu since re-opening, while the Agnes Street location is slightly reduced and there are plans to add a special of the day. The vegan restaurant won’t be open for dine-in this year, but will continue to expand their takeout options. Ussery said they have gotten a few quotes about doing a walk-up window for touchless ordering and pickup, with the hopes to have that up-and-running sometime in November.
