Chef and restaurateur Matthew Kenney is set to open a convenience store in Venice, California, offering a wide range of vegan products.
Kenny is responsible for another of other plant-based businesses, including Australia's first fully plant-based hotel restaurant, Alibi.
The shop, New Deli, will carry items such as packaged snacks, prepared foods, and even organic wines and beer - with a focus on 'sustainable, practical, everyday products'.
According to reports, Kenney has plans for stylish design, patio seating, and a prime location right by Venice Beach.
The chef partnered with local design company, Dex Studio, to create a space that stands out.
He described the space on Facebook as 'modern and beautiful', having 'a large and very green back patio'.
New Deli will open its doors on April 15 at 2524 Pacific Ave.
