In the last few weeks we have heard news regarding the launch of vegan options from McDonalds, Burger King, Dunkin Donuts and KFC, not to mention the phenomenal success of the Beyond Burger and Impossible Burger. This spring is undoubtedly seeing a vegan revolution in the fast food world. Now we hear news that another American fast food giant, Chick fil A, is considering meat replacement options on their menus to cater for vegans.
“We’re definitely aware, and I would say we’re always interested in, what’s happening in food,” Executive Director Amanda Norris said to Business Insider. “Specifically … a vegetarian option or a vegan option is something we’re looking at, we’re thinking about, and have some [research and development].”
“I think it goes back to how far will our customers want us to go,” said Norris. “We think it is certainly beyond just no meat on salads or no meat in a wrap. It might be some kind of alternative protein on a sandwich,” Norris continued.
