Burger King Is Testing a Plant-Based Chicken Sandwich at Select Locations
Yes, you read that correctly! Burger King, in partnership with vegan startup Impossible Foods, is testing a plant-based version of their original chicken sandwich at select locations in Cincinnati, Ohio.
The new offering—the “Original Chick’n Sandwich”—features Impossible Foods’ innovative Impossible chicken patties made from plants. For a limited time, lucky customers in Cincinnati can order it vegan simply by nixing the mayonnaise. Dan Greene, Impossible Foods’ SVP of North American sales, said in a statement:
Burger King has demonstrated once again that they know how to deliver innovative options that taste great. Working with them to launch our first-ever chicken patty has been a fun way to continue our partnership. We think fans are going to love this new plant-based twist on the original chicken sandwich.
This is not the first time Burger King and Impossible Foods have joined forces. In April 2019, Burger King made headlines with the launch of the Impossible Whopper at St. Louis-area locations. According to a report, the launch was so successful that foot traffic at these locations exceeded the chain’s national average by almost 17 percent! Soon Burger King took the Impossible Whopper nationwide and made it a permanent menu item.
Ordered with no cheese or mayo, the Impossible Whopper is a tasty vegan offering available at all Burger King locations—but it’s not the only one. Several other menu items can be made vegan as well, including the side garden salad (just order it without cheese) and the oatmeal. Hungry guests can also enjoy the already-vegan hash browns, French toast sticks, and classic fries.
