Carl’s Jr. now offers a vegan burger on their menu! It uses the product, Beyond Meat. It will go by “Beyond Famous Star”. This is the company’s first charbroiled plant-based patty. You can substitute this vegan patty in any burger option on the menu, including the Big Hamburger, which comes with pickles, onion, ketchup, and mustard on a sesame seed bun. Your Beyond burger can be ordered totally vegan by requesting no cheese or mayo. Order any burger wrapped in lettuce for a gluten-free option! 1,100 stores officially began offering this option as of January 2, 2019. While Beyond Meat is reserved for the Famous Star, customers can substitute the plant-based product on any burger for a $2 per patty upcharge. The chain made the Beyond Meat leap to meet changing consumer preferences, which include a desire to limit or avoid animal proteins. The number of restaurants serving plant-based proteins from suppliers such as Beyond Meat and Impossible Burger has stepped up in recent years.
