To help determine where meatless diners can get a decent and consistent meal, WalletHub researchers have published a study that evaluates the 100 most populated cities in the country based on 16 criteria in three different categories. To ensure affordability, they studied the cost of food for vegetarians, the availability of affordable restaurants suitable for vegetarians with high grades, and the average cost of a meal in each city.
They also wanted to understand the diversity, accessibility and quality of vegetarian and vegan food in each city, so they analyzed aspects such as the number of salad stores per capita, the proportion of restaurants that serve meat- and dairy-free options, the number of community gardens per capita and the availability of vegetarian cooking classes. Finally, the researchers worked to understand the vegetarian lifestyle in each city by studying the consumption of fruits and vegetables among residents and data from Grubhub on the places where diners are most likely to order a vegetarian or vegan meal. WalletHub then used a 100-point system to rate each city's metrics based on how favorable it was for vegans and vegetarians. Once the scores were counted, WalletHub weighted the average of all the metrics to find an overall score and put the cities in ranking order.
The results contain information on which cities are the best for vegetarians and vegans. Portland, Oregon, ranked first, while San Bernardino, California, came in last place.

According to Happy Cow, a collaborative list of vegetarian and vegan restaurants, London is the most vegan-friendly city in the world. Most lists of cities suitable for vegetarians or vegans are based on the number of vegetarian restaurants or cafes in a place, rather than on the number of people interested in practicing veganism. Veganism continues to grow in London, where Londoners can shop at La Fauxmagerie (the first vegan cheese factory in the United Kingdom); have dinner with a large group at Erpingham House (the largest vegan restaurant in the United Kingdom); and enjoy some fried chicken at two locations in The Temple of Seitan (the world's first vegan chicken shop).

It also analyzed the density of vegan companies per capita and compared the growth of vegan companies since its last annual report.
