We take pride in having something on our menu for everyone and our new Beyond Meat menu items, are an example of how our brand continues to respond to changing demographics, taste profiles and menu trends.”
“White Spot has nearly a century of burger expertise under their belt and shares in our commitment to creating high-quality, delicious burgers,” says Beyond Meat Founder & CEO Ethan Brown. “The Beyond Burger provides the satiating taste of a traditional burger but comes with the added health and sustainability benefits of plant-based meat. We’re excited to see how White Spot brings it to life across their menu.”
