Chanticleer Holdings Inc, the parent company of five nationally recognised restaurant brands in the USA, announced yesterday that it has partnered with Beyond Meat to offer its guests the 100% plant-based Beyond Burger patty across their locations.
Participating brands include Little Big Burger, American Burger Company, Burgers Grilled Right and Just Fresh comprising 50 plus individual store locations. Each brand will be designing and testing its own unique burger build using fresh local ingredients.
Beyond Meat is taking the food world by storm, its success has been rewarded with an astonishing introduction to the stock market, where shares in the company floated at a gain of 163% on the first day of trading, which reportedly is the biggest initial day stock market trade in two decades.
Chanticleer Holdings President Fred Glick stated, “With roughly one-third of consumers identifying as flexitarians, we’re thrilled to partner with Beyond Meat to provide a plant-based alternative to our current menu offerings. We also understand that consumers are more conscious than ever about making responsible food choices that are not only healthy, but that also take sustainability and ethical considerations into account.”
