Kevin Hart has teamed up with entrepreneur Andy Hooper and chef Michael Salem, who previously worked as Burger King’s head of culinary innovation and helped launch the vegan Impossible Whopper and opened the doors to his first restaurant “Hart House” on August 25, 2022.
In an interview with Los Angeles Magazine, Michael Salem said:
“It’s one thing when you hear someone’s idea and you’re excited about working with a celebrity. It’s another thing when you hear someone’s idea and it actually matches your own life’s work, and that’s what happened to me.”
He also added:
“I’ve seen too many animals die. I’ve had too much guilt about the food that I’ve served to the community and made them really unhealthy for a long time, and I just don’t think that’s necessary. I believe that this is the future of fast food, and that’s why I took the job. I thought it was an incredible opportunity to really make a difference and leave a legacy for the restaurant industry and an industry that’s been so good to me.”
Hart House is an affordable plant-based fast-food restaurant in the city of Los Angeles. The motto of the location is “for the people”.
