They better put money in the bank before your work cafeteria becomes a legit competitor.

It's coming.

I don't think you understand that everyone's vegan burger is not the same.....

This is like saying your work cafeteria burger is going to beat out Houston's because they got angus too.

They have competitors a lot of places sell Vegan burgers.. people like them better. It will die down some but like Otakumaster said a lot of people aren't going now because it's not convenient and the lines. In a better neighborhood and less of a wait they'll attract more repeat customers.

I was really excited to try this place out, but the hassle doesn’t seem worth it.

I understand what you're saying, I'm using hyperbole.

But also.... kind of not. It would be like saying your work cafeteria burger is as good as Houston's if they got the same exact beef from the same exact supplier. In which case, it probably would be pretty darn close.

An Impossible burger is an Impossible burger whether you get it from Piccadilly or Chops. Of course you can dress it up with better buns, smarter cooking and good toppings... but the differential isn't going to be enormous. It's a commodity.

Dining out has a lot to do with overall experience. Folks want to be "in" and often visit popular places, even if that means standing in line a long time. In fact, having to stand in line is sometimes considered positive and exciting. You're part of the scene.

Say you've got two venues that are just alike. I'd wager that the one with an SRO sign in the window and a waiting line out front will draw more customers. Who (other than old geezers like me) wants to go to a place that doesn't have the buzz?

Slutty Vegan's burgers are super unhealthy but, by now, people are still fine equating "vegan" with healthy. The Impossible Burger is fattier and has higher cholesterol than standard burgers and almost the same amount of calories, which excludes all the fillers that go into getting toppings to taste like the "real" thing. The owner has highlighted how it is junk food at best but biking pass the smell of Impossible Burger after Impossible Burger these days smells quite revolting. I used to like the smell. Not sure if I am just annoyed or it that many IBs were never meant to be made aide-by-side.

I see what they're doing: picking standing-room only spots with poor street access. I am sure the line and drop-off chaos will follow but I am not sure that means other lines will lessen. SV's Westview line is nearly always majority Black. Surely the Edgewood line will look more racially mixed.

They have obviously created a product that people love. Chik-fil-A doesn't have a monopoly on fried chicken filets, Shake Shack isn't the only one with ground beef patties etc etc etc.
