Last month, Beyond Meat announced it would be partnering with Carl’s Jr., their largest US restaurant partner to date. Now Beyond have revealed news of a “major innovation in fast food” which will be on sale in the burger chain – The Beyond Famous Star®, a plant-based version of their most iconic charbroiled burger.

The famous burgers are now available across the US in thousands of retail and restaurant outlets including Target, Whole Foods, Kroger, Safeway, Carl’s Jr.,  and TGI Fridays.

Ethan Brown, Beyond Meat CEO & founder, said: “I have long looked forward to the day when my kids can go to a major fast-food chain and order The Beyond Burger. I am grateful to say that day has arrived.”

In other Beyond news, their breakthrough Beyond Sausage, which reportedly sizzles and satisfies like pork, is showing up in more stores across the US. In a blog posted on their website, the company stated, “Coast-to-coast, we’re expanding distribution to make it easier than ever to find Beyond Sausage in your local meat case!”
