About us

Forky’s is a purely Czech project which originated in Brno in 2015.

The founder and owner of the Forky’s franchise network, Luboš Vidlička, along with his wife Klára, changed their way of eating in 2013. They wanted to introduce plant-based food to the general public in a pleasant and modern environment that is open to everyone without distinction. The goal was and still is to reach the widest possible spectrum of the population.

“Forky’s is not just a network of restaurants and bistros; it is also a means to change society’s thinking and perspective on food with all the related implications.

The sooner we realize how beneficial plant-based food is for our health, the environment, and sustainability, the faster we can ensure a better future for our future generations.”

We support

The Forky’s franchise network regularly supports meaningful projects focused on animal protection, ecology, sustainability and human rights from a portion of monthly marketing fees.

In the past, we have supported projects such as Gericon, Hlas Zvířat, Obraz – defenders of animals, People in Need, Forest for Children, Kaspro and others

The current support is aimed at protecting the biodiversity of the wild nature of the Czech organization that operates in Costa Rica, specifically their programs Green life and Blue life,

where, thanks to our guests, we contributed to the building of an educational and volunteer center that focuses on educational programs and the protection and monitoring of marine mammals and the underwater world.
