The milkshake flavors include vanilla and strawberry and are available in Beverly Hills, North Hollywood, West Hollywood, Sherman Oaks, Woodland Hills, Venice, Van Nuys, Wilshire, Redondo Beach, Carson, Santa Monica & Sepulveda, and Lincoln & Pico locations. Fatburger’s vegan menu also includes the Impossible Burger patty.

The Hollywood fast-casual restaurant has been serving made-to-order burgers for 70 years. Its fanbase includes A-list celebrities and athletes. 

The LA-based eatery, Craig’s, has been offering vegan specialties since opening in January 2011. After receiving countless requests for non-dairy ice cream, restaurant owner Craig Susser and Chef Kursten Kizer created “Craig’s Vegan,” a cashew-based frozen dessert line. It officially launched in March 2019. 

“Our existing vegan items have performed incredibly well with not only vegans but existing Fatburger customers who are looking to try something new. We have no doubt our new Craig’s Vegan Ice Cream milkshake will follow the same trajectory,” said Andy Wiederhorn, CEO of FAT Brands. “Like Fatburger, Craig’s Vegan Ice Cream is a Los Angeles institution. We are thrilled with the opportunity to partner with such a like-minded, local brand.”
