Tim Hortons Launches Beyond Meat Burger
|The Huffington Post 17 Jul 2019 at 12:43|
The doughnut and coffee chain announced Wednesday its rolling out a Beyond Burger and a BBQ Beyond Burger, both made from plant-based Beyond Meat patties.
This marks the first time Tim Hortons has offered a burger, the company says, and the decision was made apparently because it was easy to do.
The burger patty is prepared in the same way as the Beyond Sausage patty for the new breakfast sandwiches, Tim Hortons said in a press statement.
The chain announced in May it is to its menu.
Its part of a rush by food retailers and restaurants to cash in on the rapidly growing popularity of plant-based meat alternatives. Beyond Meats shares have increased in value many times over since the company debuted on the stock market in May.
Tim Hortons Beyond Meat burgers launch today in 4,000 locations across the country. The burgers cost $5.69 a pop, though prices may vary regionally, the company said.
