Beyond Meat is becoming a household name. The plant-based meat alternative brand has been sneaking onto the menus of even the most meat-heavy restaurants. They’ve partnered with Carl’s Jr., Dunkin’, KFC, Subway, Tim Horton’s, and more! Their partnership with Carl’s Jr. has proven quite successful considering that CKE, the parent company of Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s will be adding Beyond Meat items to their all-day menus!

This means the two quick service brands will offer all-day plant-based protein options during breakfast, lunch and dinner nationwide!


Carl's Jr.

Patty Trevino, Senior Vice President, Brand Marketing at CKE Restaurants told One Green Planet: “Since its debut less than a year ago, Carl’s Jr. has sold more than 6.7 million Beyond Famous Star® burgers to-date, making it the most successful product launch in the past two years. We’re continuing to build on this success by expanding our Beyond Meat partnership to Hardee’s. As we head into 2020, the addition of these new options at both restaurants is one of the many ways we’re continuing to deliver the innovation and quality Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s are known for while appealing to new audiences including flexitarians, Gen Z and millennials.”


Some of the new menu items include the Beyond Sausage Burrito and the Biscuit at Carl’s Jr, as well as the Burrito, Biscuit, and Thickburger® at Hardee’s. Most, if not all, of these options come with cheese and sometimes egg, so if you want to make them vegan or plant-based, please be sure to ask your server if it’s possible.

The new menu items are available at Carl’s Jr. starting today, December 18th and at Hardee’s starting December 30th.
