Beyond Meat Offers Free Veggie Burgers to Fast Food Chains

Now famous burger joints have absolutely no excuse for not offering a veggie option as Beyond Meat is giving their product for free to restaurants that decide to give them a try.

After a Huffington Post article highlighted all the reasons why beef burgers are terrible for the planet and people’s health, the company that makes completely plant based ‘meats’ like burgers, ‘beef crumbles’ and ‘chicken strips’ is posing a challenge to every burger restaurant mentioned in it: offer their product and get a free palette of veggie burgers.

“For any of the burger joints mentioned in the Huffington Post piece that put the Beast Burger on their menu before November 1, 2014, we will deliver a free pallet of Beast Burgers,” said Beyond Meat CEO Ethan Brown. “We stand ready to put the delicious, protein-packed, nutrient-dense Beast into the hands of burger artists across the country.”

The Beast Burgers have as much iron and protein as beef burgers (so don’t worry about not getting enough of that, meat eaters) and they have a dash of vitamins B-6 and B-12 and antioxidants so they’re basically health food. Well, not really, but you can tell yourself that!

To get the burger joints on board, Beyond Meat is asking all veggie lovers to unite and tweet the chains below with the hashtag #BeastMe.

•In-N-Out Burger : @innoutburger_

•Burger Lounge: @Burger_Lounge

•Five Guys: @Five_Guys

•Shake Shack: @shakeshack

•Smashburger: @smashburger

•Bareburger: @bareburger

•Yeah! Burger: @yeahburger

•Black & Orange: @blacknorangedc

•Bobby’s Burger Palace: @bobbysburgerpal

•BGR: The Burger Joint: @BGRBurgerJoint

•Elevation Burger: @elevationburger

•Fuddruckers: @fuddruckers

•McDonald’s: @McDonalds

•Burger King: @BurgerKing

Maybe between the public’s request, a free product offer and Kathy Freston’s petition to get McDonald’s to offer a vegetarian option, the movement will create the perfect veggie storm that will bring about some change — and veggie burgers — to people everywhere.

    Wonderful! Thank you Beyond Meat! I just tweeted all these restaurants!

    This is awesome, but for the record Burger King already has veggie burgers.

    If veggie burgers were profitable for these companies, why wouldn’t they be doing that already? One palette won’t change their marginal cost unless they think they can bring I’m exceptionally increased volume through the publicity.

      The issue is old school thinking, the kind Blockbuster was engaged in before going under. The same kind of thinking that led to the auto industry bailout and is causing fossil fuel industries to lobby stronger than ever. They don’t want to move on to the future they want to stick with what they know.

      Obviously everyone eating three square meals of factory farmed protein isn’t going to work forever but none of the big names have the courage or foresight to rock the status quo. All we can do is hope someone sees the opportunity (like Tesla in the auto industry) and steps up.

    Burger King serves garden-style veggie burgers, made from vegetables. These are MEATY burgers that recreate the taste and texture of real beef. The selling point is that these are cruelty-free, healthier, and more environmentally friendly than traditional burgers. I think they should offer free samples to get people to try them and learn their benefits.If enough people like them then there would definitely be demand
