The fast food chain uses the signature colours of McDonald’s – red and yellow – and offers its own plant-based version of the Happy Meal, called the Frowny.

Other offerings on its menu, which don’t contain meat, are three types of burgers, a ‘chicken’ burger and ‘chicken’ nuggets.

In a social media post, the chain, which started operating in 2022, said the store in Redfern would open in a few weeks.

It said it chose the Sydney suburb, in the south of the city so that the company could work with and help indigenous communities.

The outlet will be located o Cope Street, next to the Aboriginal Employment Strategy offices.

Mr Charlie’s said: “We are proud to be teaming up with some incredible charities and brand partners who are creating opportunity for the Aboriginal people.

“Mr. Charlie’s is more than a vegan burger joint, it’s an energy wave on a mission to restore a loving connection to serving this planet and her people through food and service.

“To all of the kind humans of Australia, we will see you soon.”

The firm says on its website that its mission is to “redefine fast food” and to offer more sustainable choices.

Since opening its doors in the US, it has become popular on TikTok with users of the social media site flocking to one of its three locations in the country to air their views on the food.

Pop star Lizzo posted a video on TikTok in 2022 with the post showing the singer trying out the food.

The clip quickly went viral, notching up more than 4million views.
