Since 2008, the veggie burger's menu presence has grown 17 percent, according to Kathy Hayden, a foodservice analyst for Mintel Menu Insights. That should be making a lot of people happy. According to a study commissioned by the Vegetarian Times, more than 7 million Americans follow a vegetarian-based diet.
