Earth Burger lands in San Marcos

Wednesday, July 11, 2018

Earth Burger, an all veggie burger stand that opened in San Antonio in 2014, will expand and open a location in San Marcos, Texas this month. 

It will be located at 656 E. Hopkins St., less than a quarter mile from Interstate 35. It is in the former Church’s Chicken building, next to KFC. 

Earth Burger was established by the vegetarian pioneers of San Antonio, who created Green Vegetarian. In 2017, the chain went completely vegan. Earth Burger is one of the nation's first vegan drive-thrus offering a healthy, low calorie take on fast food for those on the go. They are taking over the fast food market with tastier, fresher and healthier alternatives that also happen to be vegan. Earth Burger’s goal is to provide people with great healthy choices at a great value, all while being Earth-friendly. 

Earth Burger’s menu ranges from fish-less sandwiches to grilled chik’n protein wraps, BBQ sandwiches and their signature Earth Burger. All meals are made with nutrient rich, plant-based ingredients, no hydrogenated oils and no artificial colors. Guests can add sides like fries, kale salads, apple slices and organically sweetened sodas. 

Chef Mike Behrend, aka "The Veg King," pioneered the veggie movement in San Antonio. Now his third veggie concept is taking off. Earth Burger was jump started with a successful Kickstarter in 2014 and it’s been going like a rocket ship ever since. 

“All of us at Earth Burger are excited to bring tasty plant-powered fast food to our friends in San Marcos,” Behrend said. “Vegans, vegetarians and meat eaters alike will love our take on healthier burgers, shakes and fries.”
