There will soon be a new place to eat out for people who don’t eat animal products.
Parlor City Vegan has graduated from the Koffman Southern Tier Incubator and will soon be moving into its own space at 81 Clinton Street in Binghamton.
The business was formed in 2016 by Sara and Lei Liu and initially sold their plant-based dishes at the Broome County Farmers Market and catered vegan events.
It also produced a line of dairy-free cheeses including its own vegan versions of mozzarella, feta and an aged cheddar sauce.
Parlor City Vegan is the 6th company to graduate from the incubator and received market research help from its Accelerator program.
“We’ve actually been really surprised by the demand in Broome County for vegan products. When we first started, we just brought 10 sandwiches with us to the Broome County Farmers Market and we sold out almost immediately. And it’s really just taken off and grown from there.”
In addition to producing her vegan cheese in the storefront, Liu plans to open a cafe on site sometime in April.
It will serve a variety of American-style comfort food made only with plant-based products including mac and cheese, burgers and sandwiches.
