Interstate Hotels & Resorts has launched a vegan and vegetarian culinary promotion in the 540 hotels it manages throughout the U.S. and internationally in a bid to meet the 'growing demand' for plant-based eats.

The company will target lunch and dinner entrées in restaurants and banquets across Interstate’s full-service hotels - with 27 new vegetarian/vegan menu items.

Research conducted by Interstate showed that there has been a 350 percent increase in the number of people consuming a plant-based diet within the past decade, and it now addresses the demand through its new initiative.

'Growing demand'

"We recognized a shift in the growing demand of consumers craving healthier options and it is our job to cater to the desires of our guests and meeting attendees," said Interstate’s VP of Food & Beverage Operations Bradley Moore. 

"There is a clear need to offer plant-based menu items and we are thrilled about the quality, variety and benefits our hotels will be able to provide to travelers seeking healthy alternatives while on the road."

The new meat-free fare includes dishes such as: Corn Risotto, Eggplant Meatballs and Zucchini Noodles, Nashville Eggplant with Mac & Cheese and Wilted Kale, Pastrami Beets, Zucchini Squash Spaghetti with Spigarello Hazelnut Pesto, and Tuscan Avocado Toast.
