US vegan fast-food chain Mr Charlie’s is opening its first location in Australia – in Redfern, Sydney – during the next few weeks.

Dubbed the ‘vegan McDonald’s’, Mr Charlie’s’ store will feature the fast food giant’s signature colours of red and yellow and sell its own version of a Happy Meal – the Frowny.

Located on Cope Street next to the Aboriginal Employment Strategy offices, the venue will also offer other plant-based dishes including three different types of burgers, an alt-chicken burger, and alt-chicken nuggets.

In a social media post, the chain said it chose Redfern to start its “mission to create change” by aiding indigenous communities.

“We are proud to be teaming up with some incredible charities and brand partners who are creating opportunity for the Aboriginal people.”

Launched in 2022, Mr Charlie’s aims to “redefine fast food” and offer its customers more sustainable choices, with stores opened in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Venice Beach.
