From creating one of the most popular vegan brands to creating side hustles, Slutty Vegan’s CEO, Pinky Cole, can now add “Time 100 Next” to her list of accomplishments. In an emotional video, she announced on her Instagram page that she made the highly coveted list.
“I’m crying ugly tears all week 🙏🏾. Thank you @TIME and thank you to the dopest @dhmeyer for writing about me, you are the best ❤️. This is a win for ATLANTA, BMORE, and every entrepreneur in America who wakes up everyday to realize their wildest dreams!” the Clark Atlanta University alumna wrote.
“Y’all…I know it’s so childish to record yourself crying, but I just made the ‘Time 100 Next’ list,” she tearfully said.
“Oh, I am so happy. Thank you so much, Time. I ain’t never knew nobody on the Time list and now I’m on that b****,” Cole continued. “So thank you so much! Today is going to be a great day.”
“Link in my bio, so you can see everybody that’s on the list, and I’m in the ‘Phenom’ category, OK…so put some respect on name!” the entrepreneur added.
Pinky Cole Receives Her Flowers
Cole is a force to be reckoned with and has no plans of stopping anytime soon. Her mission to spotlight vegan food as great for our planet and fun has brought her a multimillion-dollar business. The expecting mother has revolutionized perceptions of vegan eateries. She is at the forefront of a movement, satiating a deep-rooted need for people to be part of a community where doing good and having a tantalizingly good time go hand in hand.
In addition, Slutty Vegan recently opened their 13th location on Spelman College’s campus, allowing Atlanta University Center students to indulge in the restaurant. From the quirky menu items to all she has done for her community, no one is more deserving of this recognition than Cole.
