Many popular restaurants and fast food chains around the world have been slowly adding or testing vegan menu items. And it seems that every time, the product does insanely well. KFC tested Beyond Meat chicken and sold out in five hours, McDonald’s (who no one ever expected vegan items from) launched vegan happy meals in Sweden and UK, Burger King tested the Impossible whopper and after just two months expanded it to all locations nationwide, and Dunkin’ expanded the Beyond Meat sausage sandwich after much fast success. But in the UK, a new vegan option took the world by storm — Greggs vegan sausage roll!
It made Piers Morgan even angrier than he usually is, had all of social media talking, and boosted the company’s profits by 58 percent! Such success must mean more vegan foods is what the people want, right? Well Greggs sure understands that and they are giving the people more of what they want — this time, with a vegan menu!

Just in time for Veganuary, the menu is speculated to include a vegan steak bake, a glazed ring doughnut, and a warm winter vegetable soup.
The employee who spilled the secret menu items (which are speculation and could turn out not to be true) also said that the Greggs employees have to be very careful with equipment. Recently there was a lawsuit against Burger King because the meatless Impossible whopper was cooked on the same grill as the meat burgers. However, the employee told Metro UK: “We are trained to use different coloured serving equipment (such as tongs, ladles, etc.) for different dietary preferences.”
The vegan menu drops at Greggs in January 2020.
