The move away from meat has picked up steam in recent years, and shows no signs of slowing. Data from nutrition company Soylent shows t hat 10% of U.S. adults are vegan or vegetarian — up thirtyfold from the early 2000s. And scientists predict that by 2040, 60% of the world will have a plant-based diet. 

This trend in consumer behavior is one that the franchise industry has taken note of. More restaurant concepts with vegan and vegetarian premises are popping up, and are seeing increasing interest as popular choices.

The following are some of the top new vegan restaurant franchises that are seeking new investors to help grow:
