Canadian plant-based food company Naturally Splendid announces that Denny’s Restaurants has renewed an agreement to serve Naturally’s Plantein Nuggets and Crumbed Tenders at all of Denny’s Canadian restaurants.
“Having Denny’s renew with us and considering additional items shows that their customer base enjoys eating our products”
According to Naturally Splendid, the renewed agreement is part of a national program, and Denny’s will continue to offer plant-based chicken items at all corporate and participating franchise locations. Consumers can find the breaded tenders and nuggets under the Plantein brand, with Denny’s recently completing new on-premises advertising and a rebranded restaurant menu.
Plantain’s tenders and nuggets are also available for online retail purchase, along with the brand’s other products, including Plant-Based Schnitzel, Garlic Kievs, the Crispy Burger, and Phishy Fillet.
“In addition to renewing our agreement, we are very excited to report that Denny’s and Naturally Splendid have begun discussions regarding adding additional Plantein plant-based products to their menu,” states Naturally Splendid Executive Vice President Bryan Carson. “Having Denny’s renew with us and considering additional items shows that their customer base enjoys eating our products, and we look forward to continuing to provide our delicious plant-based entrees to this iconic restaurant chain.”
Founded in 2010, Naturally Splendid is a food manufacturing and technology company that produces and distributes plant-based commodity products. The company operates a certified food manufacturing facility located near Vancouver, BC, that produces an extensive range of plant-based entrees.
“Through the course of the pandemic, sales of conventional meat and poultry have been impacted by supply chain disruptions and escalating prices, pushing consumers and operators to seek alternative proteins,” said Naturally Splendid CEO, Mr. J. Craig Goodwin. “Foodservice providers are meeting consumer’s demand for plant-based foods by partnering with brands like Plantein to provide a wide assortment of selections making it easier than ever to choose plant-based foods as part of their diet. We could not be more pleased than to be partnering with Denny’s in this growing category.”
