Yum Brands Inc. on Monday stated that they will be testing plant-based chicken nuggets and boneless wings from Beyond Meat. The plant-based products will be tested at an Atlanta KFC restaurant. KFC is the latest fast-food chain trying new options in an attempt to attract vegan diners.
The quick-service restaurant will roll out its vegan menu items nationally based on the customer feedback from the Atlanta test, Yum said.
Yum is the latest big-chain restaurant jumping on the vegan bandwagon, a growing market as more fast-food chains tweak their menus to add new options for vegans and ‘flexitarians’.
KFC, known for its fried chicken, will be serving the six or 12-piece combo plant-based nugget meals for $6.49 and $8.49 and boneless wings for $6 and $12.
I think the plant-based nuggets are worth a try. What do you think?
