Native Foods Café is a fast-casual concept serving vegan fare. Everything is made from scratch daily and when possible, the chain uses organic and local ingredients. Native Foods Café draws a range of diners, including meat eaters. The chain strives to be quirky in its design, working with what is available and prominent in each location. In 2009 a group of private investors led by husband-and-wife team Andrea McGinty and Daniel Dolan acquired the chain, with the goal of national expansion and more than 200 locations by the fall of 2017.
