A local burger joint has decided to cash in on the rising popularity of plant-based meats. Hot Chip Burger Bar, located on 16th street, is opening a second location that will specialize in vegan burgers. The new restaurant will be located under Porch on 4th street in downtown Rochester, near the Government Center. Porch and Hot Chip have the same owners.

Hot Chip posted the announcement to their Facebook: "We are branching out. Our flagship store on 16th, Hot Chip has the BEEF. Downtown Hot Chip is underground, (literally under Porch) and plant-based is on the rise. Hot Chip VEGAN Burger Bar will open in the former Cellar space late this year!"

You can follow the burger joint on Facebook for updates on the new restaurant.
