Raleigh, NC-based Irregardless Cafe, finalist for Green Plus North American Sustainable Enterprise of 2011, is also eligible to win the Green Plus People’s Choice Award. The Irregardless Café and Catering company is a Raleigh institution.  The longest family-owned restaurant in the community, it was also the first vegetarian restaurant in the Triangle.  It is a superb example of triple bottom line sustainability and its owners, Anya and Arthur Gordon, are dedicated to supporting their community through their business.  The Café regularly hosts local musicians and artists as well as science discussions.

Local food is a priority at the Irregardless Café, but their dedication to their employees is unparalleled.  For example in 1994 the restaurant was victim of a fire and underwent nine months of renovation and restoration.  During that time, full time employees were kept on in exchange for volunteering with local nonprofits.
