GRAZERS—1st place vegan and veggie

Rachel Hale

Stacey Lasher and Carl Bauer, the owners of GRAZERS, started their careers as elementary school teachers.

“When we decided to give up teaching, we wanted to do something else where we could make a difference in the world,” Lasher said.

After a few years in downtown Kent, GRAZERS quickly outgrew its small location on Franklin Avenue and moved into a larger location on North Water Street. Soon after, GRAZERS debuted its location at the Student Center.

GRAZERS is the go-to place for vegan or vegetarians looking for fresh, healthy options.

Lasher said their menu is 93% vegetarian and 75% vegan, so there is something for everyone.

GRAZERS takes pride in its transparency with its customers about what ingredients are used.
