Restaurants are seeing the value of adding vegan and vegetarian options to their menus. Carl’s Jr. collaborated with Beyond Meat to offer a vegan patty, mean celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay is offering a vegan menu for a while, and Del Taco collaborated with Beyond Meat to introduce a vegan taco. Now, the very famous fast food chain, Taco Bell has announced that they will be testing out a vegetarian menu with vegan options later this year.

Taco Bell’s Manager of Global Nutrition & Sustainability, Missy Schaaphok says: “We know that Americans are increasingly opting for vegan, vegetarian, and flexitarian meals, and we pride ourselves on being able to accommodate a wide variety of diets and lifestyles. That’s why we’re excited to offer our first-ever dedicated vegetarian menu, as well as new vegetarian and vegan menu items to provide our customers with more choices — without compromising craveability, simplicity, quality, or value.”
