Citing an ongoing lawsuit, this popular vegan eatery has closed

A prominent vegan eatery in Columbus has shut its doors, at least for now.

According to owner Ty Banks, the meatless food truck Where It All Vegan has closed due to an ongoing lawsuit. Its final day or operation was Dec. 11 at It’s All Natural Temple Store’s Winter Vegan Pop-up.

“It’s been a crazy year to say the least but we’ve had the pleasure of literally serving thousands of you, in so many different communities all over the city and beyond, and we are forever grateful,” The eatery said in a statement posted to its Instagram account. “Sadly, we have to park our truck, while fighting a legal battle and don’t know if and when we’ll see you again.”


Banks declined to discuss details on the lawsuit, but said there is still a chance the eatery may reopen in the future,

“We hope this is just a goodbye for now,” he said. “I told my wife we would never put the business before our family or mental health, and with what’s going on right now, we just can’t afford to operate the truck as well.”

The eatery was launched in 2019, and since then has attempted to serve as not only a hotspot for meatless cuisine, but also an instrument of change throughout the city. Banks said Where It All Vegan often worked with Columbus City Schools, sometimes donating food, and often educating children on vegan eating.

“The impact piece was more about trying to educate people. We’re not trying to force anyone to go vegan,” Banks said.

A former homeless teenager when he was only 14, Banks and Where It All Vegan would also drive around after events, handing out any leftover food items to homeless Columbus residents.
