An online marketplace for vegan foods recently unveiled its platform, called GTFO It’s Vegan.

The company, incorporated as GreatFoods It’s Vegan LLC, with an office at Newport Center, sources and offers more than 600 food products from mom-and-pop shops and small businesses.

It’s headed by acting Chief Executive Marc Pierce, a technology entrepreneur who founded the company with his wife, Tanya.

Marc, Tanya and their three children relocated from Chicago to Newport Beach in 2017. Ahead of the move, the duo decided to go vegan but struggled to find great tasting foods that fit with their diet.

“After coming to California, we realized it’s more accessible to get great food that is vegan here. Most places have very limited access. That’s why we decided to launch GTFO It’s Vegan,” Marc said.

Since its launch in late May, the company has received hundreds of orders and sold more than 6,000 products, with one- to three-day shipping available anywhere in the country, Marc said.

As it ramps up its national distribution, the company said it is looking to provide a home delivery option in the Southern California region.
