ALTOONA, PA—Sheetz is the first continental U.S. convenience store to bring the plant-based Beyond Burger to its stores, reports Fox 8 News. Starting at $6.99, customers at all 597 Sheetz locations can order the new menu item.
According to a press release, the burger can be customized with “over 47 options including seven bread choices, seven cheese choices, 20 different toppings and 13 various spreads.”
“Sheetz is constantly innovating and adding new menu items to give our customers what they want, when they want it, 24/7,” said Dan Coffin, lead chef and AVP of Culinary Development at Sheetz. “As demand for healthier, diverse protein options increases, we are excited to add the Beyond Burger to our menu in our continual mission to be the ultimate one-stop-shop.”
Many other fast-food options are leaning into the plant-based movement. The “meatless revolution” has prompted companies like Burger King, White Castle, TGI Fridays, Tim Horton’s and more to add vegetarian-friendly patties to their menus. Even meat companies themselves are embracing alternative meat products.
