Nicole Marquis, Founder and CEO of HipCityVeg is an Entrepreneur on a Mission

Welcome to this special presentation of the Emerging Brand Podcast brought to you in part by Kabbage. The Emerging Brand Podcast on Foodable+ explores brands that are at various stages of development but are innovating within our industry. These brands have developed loyalty with their customers through forward-thinking service, offerings, design, and purpose.   

On this episode, Nicole Marquis, Founder and CEO of HipCityVeg, tells us how she developed her restaurant to show people that plant-based cuisine can be delicious. Her mission started when her desire to help her father fix his high blood pressure and type 2 diabetes became a debate about genetics versus diet.  Nicole knew that she needed to show, not tell, her father that he could eat well and not give anything up that he loves about food, to instill a lifestyle change.

Listen to the podcast above to hear how Marquis is using the restaurant industry to facilitate lifestyle changes for her customers.
