Dunkin’ Launches the Beyond Sausage Sandwich Nationwide
Multinational coffee company Dunkin’ just announced a rollout of the Beyond Sausage Sandwich to more than 9,000 U.S. locations on November 6! Hungry patrons will be able to veganize the sandwich by ordering the sausage on an English muffin without cheese or egg.
The company made history in July as the first U.S. chain to add Beyond Meat sausage to its menu, initially debuting sandwiches made with Beyond Breakfast Sausage exclusively at Dunkin’ locations in Manhattan.
Dunkin’ U.S. president Dave Hoffmann stated:
We are extremely proud of our partnership with Beyond Meat and thrilled to be the first U.S. quick-service restaurant to offer Beyond Breakfast Sausage nationwide. Dunkin’ is the brand that democratizes trends for America, and this latest addition to our menu gives consumers more choice to meet their evolving needs. As we continue to transform our brand, we’re proud to use our platform to give everyone the opportunity to enjoy the great taste and benefits of plant-based protein.
Beyond Meat seemed equally thrilled with the partnership. Founder and CEO Ethan Brown said in a statement:
We’re excited to introduce the Beyond Sausage Sandwich nationwide and in doing so, offer an option with fewer calories, less total fat, saturated fat, cholesterol and sodium, while delivering more protein and iron than a comparable pork sausage sandwich. We are excited that everyone who runs on Dunkin’ now has the option to make a delicious plant-based sausage sandwich part of their day.
As the world’s appetite for plant-based meat grows, huge companies like Dunkin’ are taking notice. McDonald’s, the largest restaurant company in the United States by sales, just partnered with Beyond Meat to start testing a plant-based burger in 28 restaurants in Ontario, Canada. In August, Kentucky Fried Chicken tested Beyond Meat fried chicken in Atlanta, even painting the restaurant green in honor of the launch.
