Serious Eats loves the Faux Gras sandwich at 61 local. Thanks Y’all!

Serious Eats checks in with Regal Vegan founder, Ella Nemcova

While every successful small food company starts with a good product, that ends up being a very small part of the endeavor is the end. “Making something good is easy,” Nemcova says, “It’s about figuring out your passion and principles and sticking with them.
