Veggie Grill uses only plant-based ingredients on its menu, but the global flavors, seasonal ingredients and chef-inspired dishes draw meat eaters as well as vegetarians. The company’s goal is to double sales every 18 to 24 months and make it a top choice among health-conscious diners. In the last five years, its compound annual growth rate was 43.1 percent.
