Yum Brands Inc said on Monday it will be testing Beyond Meat Incís plant-based chicken nuggets and boneless wings at an Atlanta KFC restaurant, the latest fast-food chain trying new options to attract vegan diners.
The quick-service restaurant will roll out its vegan menu items nationally based on the customer feedback from the Atlanta test, Yum said.
Yum is the latest big-chain restaurant jumping on the vegan bandwagon, a growing market as more fast-food chains tweak their menus to add new options for vegans and Ďflexitariansí.
Plant-based meat alternatives have seen booming interest from consumers and restaurants, supporting startups like Beyond Meat and its competitor Impossible Foods, and even sparking interest from veteran meat companies such as Tyson Foods Inc and Perdue Foods.
Beyond Meat has already partnered with sandwich chain Subway, Del Taco Restaurant Inc, Carlís Jr, Dunkiní Brands Group Inc and Restaurant Brand Internationalís Tim Hortons.
