After a successful LA-exclusive launch, Denny’s will expand its Beyond Meat options to more locations across the country.

Despite the fact that new variations of the classic chicken sandwich are still popping up seemingly at every restaurant you tend to visit on a regular basis these days, plant-based fast food is still in high demand across the country and beyond.

There’s no better proof than Denny’s choice to expand their Beyond Meat offerings to over 1,700 locations in the United States and Canada.

It all began with an experiment of sorts. The restaurant chain launched its own Beyond Burger in restaurants across the Los Angeles area. That launch proved so successful that the chain is confident in its choice to offer the Denny’s Beyond Burger in select locations nationwide.

The Denny’s Beyond Burger is made with a Beyond Burger patty (100% plant-based) and comes with sliced tomatoes, onions, lettuce, pickles, American cheese, and All-American sauce. All this is piled between two halves of a multigrain bun.

Plant-based meat is still a work in progress. It takes a lot of trial and error to figure out how to make a meatless burger patty look, feel, and taste like meat. But compared to a traditional beef burger, the saturated fat and cholesterol content is almost non-existent. And the substantial protein is worth not just the calories, but the texture and taste as well.

The Beyond Burger is the only option available from Denny’s Beyond Meat partnership at this time. But there is always a chance that higher demand for plant protein products made by brands consumers trust can lead to even more options on the popular restaurant’s menu in the future.

You can grab your free Beyond Burger at participating Denny’s locations on January 30 anytime from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. All you have to do is purchase a drink, and the burger comes free.
