Good news continues to follow Pinky Cole!
“I have the most ICONIC announcement of my professional career,” Cole wrote on Instagram. “Slutty Vegan will be a PERMANENT LOCATION in Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson Airport! WE JUST WON THE BID.”
She continued, “Y’all, this is the busiest airport in America, and my restaurant will be there! Special shoutout to the team @justcrain @randyhazelton and H@H hospitality!!! ITS GO TIME!! CONCOURSE B HERE WE COME!”

“Hey, y’all. It’s me again, Pinky Cole Hayes. And you know, we just had our five-year anniversary,” Cole said on Instagram. “So right now, I’m on Spelman College’s campus, and it’s move-in day. And guess who else is moving in?”
There are now more than 13 Slutty Vegan locations (at the time of this writing), and that number will likely soar as Cole has a goal to create a billion-dollar brand, as AFROTECH previously reported. The company is valued at $100 million after raising a $25 million Series A funding round in 2022.
Cole’s formula to success is simple.
In an interview with Forbes, she attributes it to being a good person.
“The secret to my success is simply being a good person. I am fair, I’m honest, and I love helping people, sometimes to a fault. I realize that my good karma comes from being consistently good to other people and that’s why blessings continue to come to me,” Cole told the outlet.
