The Organic Coup: First All-Organic Fast Food Chain Founded by Costco Execs Raises $7 Million in Funding

A fast-food chain founded by two former Costco executives just raised $7 million in a round of funding that was led by Costco’s founder. The organic chain currently has two restaurants in San Francisco and Pleasanton, California, and is preparing to expand to at least 24 new locations with its new investment.

The Organic Coup, a USDA-certified organic fast-food chain, is the first of its kind in the United States. It specializes in fried-chicken sandwiches prepared in coconut oil and offers sides such as chocolate-drizzled popcorn. Coconut oil is perhaps the most expensive oil on the market, but was chosen for its obvious health benefits.
