(The Very Good Butchers)

These aren’t your typical neighbourhood butchers.

Victoria’s The Very Good Butchers is a vegan restaurant that provides a unique alternative to meat products: they “butcher” beans and create delicious meat-like loafs, burgers, sausages and more that can be consumed on their own or paired with other foods.

The idea has been so popular that the team is struggling to meet demands. They had to shut down for a whole week to restock after a thousand people showed up to their restaurant on opening day.

And since over a hundred restaurants and grocery stores are all clamouring to stock their products, these bean butchers needed a way to help their business grow.

So this November, you can watch the owners James and Mitchell being featured on Canada’s favourite entrepreneurial show, Dragons’ Den, on November 29th at 8 pm.

“Launching a business is no small task. No matter how big an idea you think you have, it still takes a lot of work and a ton of cash,” reads a statement from the company.

“Enter Dragons’ Den, where aspiring entrepreneurs pitch their business concepts and products to a panel of Canadian business moguls who have the cash and the know-how to make it happen.”

Will they be successful in enticing one or more of the Dragons to bite, and invest in the company? Tune in to CBC on November 29th and find out!
