Family, Friends, and a lot of Surprises came out to support Slutty Vegan Pinky Cole’s Book Launch
Updated: Nov 26, 2022
Pinky Cole, the Founder and Visionary behind the ultra-popular vegan restaurant and food truck Slutty Vegan, launched her cookbook "Eat Plants, B*tch" at the second stop of her multi city tour in Atlanta.
The tour, named the Pinky Cole Experience, will make stops in New York, Los Angeles, Dallas, and in her hometown Baltimore. At the second stop in Atlanta, the Pinky Cole Experience was hosted by Big Tigger of BET Rap City fame and many celebs and political dignitaries that stopped by to show love like Jermaine Dupri, Senator Raphael Warnock, and the Mayor of Atlanta Andre Dickens.

During the sit-down conversation with Big Tigger, Pinky detailed her early struggles of running the business from closing her first restaurant in Harlem because of a grease fire, to finding the right staffers to work in the business. She told the packed audience on hand to always keep the faith and never give up on your dreams. She states that it is important for her to keep growing this now multi-million-dollar business to build a financial legacy for her young children.
Pinky is paying it forward by shouting out black owned businesses on her live Instagram videos and she had one of the black owned clothing designers that she wears, Major Coins, come up on stage to be acknowledged and connected with the owner of Essence Magazine to get a distribution deal. She even picked out an owner of a local juice bar in Atlanta, I Get Juiced, out of the audience to work with her on a future collaboration.
From being serenaded by Q Parker from 112, to closing the show with Jagged Edge, the Pinky Experience didn't fail to leave a memorable night. Let's not forget Saucy Santana making a surprise appearance and bringing the house down.
Pinky Cole's empire features Slutty Vegan locations throughout Atlanta and now in Brooklyn, Bar Vegan, and the Pinky Cole Foundation which empowers people of color to pursue their entrepreneurial dream. She has been recognized by several prestigious organizations and publications throughout the country.
