The new owners of a popular city vegan restaurant have revealed plans to secure the brand's future.  

The Tipsy Vegan opened in St Benedicts Street in 2017 with owners Michelle McCabe and Cheryl Mullinger at the helm but Kostas Petrou and Andrew Warren took over three weeks ago.

Kostas said: “We have lots of plans for the flagship site in Norwich including a big recruitment drive to ensure we find the best people to continue the great service and food the brand has become known for.

“We have restructured slightly and Norwich is in really good shape which puts us in a great position to move forward, which includes plans to expand.” 

The new owners also plan to introduce deliveries on a larger basis as well as have very active social media pages to keep the buzz around the restaurant going.

Kostas said: “We also plan on doing discounts including a Sunday discount where people can get a vegan roast dinner at a reduced cost, which we think will be very popular.” 

The Tipsy Vegan opened a second restaurant in September 2021, in Cambridge, which is currently closed for an "end of summer break".

However, the new chiefs are so confident in their plans they have even been talking to their landlord about extending their Norwich lease.  

“Norwich is simply thriving,” Kostas added.

They also have plans to expand into other major cities including Nottingham, London and Birmingham.  

Kostas said: "We plan on building and growing stronger than ever, with the plans to expand and get this brand out there. 

"We have a fantastic reputation thanks to the previous owners, and we intend to take The Tipsy Vegan to new heights"
