Chick-fil-A is revealing that is in in the early stages of creating plant-based meat for its menu, as per the chain’s Senior Director of Menu Development Amanda Norris.
The fast-food chain—famous for its gifts who are hostile to LGBTQ causes—has been investigating meat options all the more firmly after contenders, for example, Burger King and Carl’s Jr. refreshed their menus with plant-based burgers.
“We’re definitely aware, and I would say we’re always interested in, what’s happening in food,” Norris disclosed to Business Insider. “Specifically … a vegetarian option or a vegan option is something we’re looking at, we’re thinking about, and have done some research and development.”
Norris uncovered that creating menu things normally takes 18 months to two years and the organization is happy to consider including a vegan chicken choice.
“I think it goes back to how far will our customers want us to go,” Norris said. “We’re certainly wanting to broaden our thinking … we think it is certainly beyond just no meat on salads or no meat in a wrap.
Norris is predicting that every chain is going to have an “awakening” on vegan menu items. Whether a brand rolls out its own version of vegan products or decides against doing so will be a decision that says something specific about the brand.
So, does this mean that Chick-fil-A is going to be rolling out a chicken-free version of its famous fried-chicken sandwich?
“I think it goes back to how far will our customers want us to go,” Norris finished his statement for the newspaper.
It might be some kind of alternative protein on a sandwich.” Earlier this month, Dunkin‘ ( Dunkin’ Donuts Was rebranded) CEO David Hoffman uncovered that the chain is likewise considering adding vegan products to its menu in the wake of watching the developing prevalence of Beyond Meat.
