“I’m happy and proud to be moving to meat free and would prefer to be moving in the right direction as a business, being part of the solution not the problem. The world doesn’t need another meat hot dog place, there’s enough out there, but we can still do with more places offering some tasty meat free lunch choices and that’s what we plan to do.” – James Stock
James Stock is the founder of Fat Annie’s which started out in 2014 selling hot dogs on the streets of Manchester. Fat Annie’s now has a permanent home in the Food Hall of Leeds Kirkgate Market. After seeing that the amount of meat being eaten in the developed world is not sustainable, they made the decision to go completely meat free in 2020 – and the response has been amazing!
