Chicago’s Epic Burger Adds Plant-Based Chicken Tenders to Menu
Chicago-based Epic Burger adds new plant-based options to its menu, featuring Beyond Meat’s chicken tenders!
Chicago’s Epic Burger adds plant-based chicken tenders to the menu. The restaurant, which promotes a “more mindful burger” experience, has partnered with Beyond Meat to launch its latest plant-based option—Beyond Chicken Tenders. According to Epic Burger, the Beyond Chicken Tenders are cooked in the same fryer as non-vegan foods, so guests who are concerned with cross-contamination should be aware. Additionally, the Epic Sauce included on two of the new items is not vegan. Just sub Vegenaise to create your all-vegan meal.
Epic Burger’s Partnership with Beyond Meat
“We’re excited to provide another plant-based offering on Epic Burger’s menus, following the success of the Beyond Burger,” said Tim Smith, Beyond Meat’s VP of North America Sales, Foodservice. “Perfect for a variety of dishes and sure to be an instant crowd-favorite, Beyond Chicken Tenders provide the delicious taste and texture of traditional tenders that consumers love, with the added nutritional and environmental benefits of plant-based meat.”
Epic Burger’s Plant-Based Options
Beyond Chicken Tenders are breaded to perfection for a crispy outside and irresistibly juicy, tender bite. Like all Beyond Meat products, Beyond Chicken Tenders are made from simple, plant-based ingredients without GMOs. Epic’s updated menu will feature a 3-piece tender order, as well as a new Beyond Wrap featuring Beyond Chicken Tenders, lettuce, tomato, pickle, and Epic Sauce (which must be substituted for Veganaise to be made vegan). These new menu items add to Epic Burger’s existing lineup of plant-based offerings including the Beyond Burger, a selection of fries, and a dairy-free lemon ice shake.
“Epic is thrilled to expand our plant-based menu,” said David Grossman, CEO of Epic Burger. “As eating habits are changing and the momentum of plant-based diets are building, Epic is excited to be one of the first restaurant partners in Chicago to offer this truly delicious Beyond Meat product.”
The new vegan menu items will be available to order at all seven store locations and will be added to the Epic Burger app in the coming days. Visit EpicBurger.com/locations to find a restaurant near you.
