Tim Hortons Restaurants In Canada To Offer Beyond Meat Sandwiches

Tim Hortons said that Beyond Meat Breakfast Sandwiches are now available at the chain's nearly 4,000 restaurants in Canada.

The Canadian coffee chain will offer customers three new breakfast sandwich options made with the 100 percent plant-based Beyond Meat Breakfast Sausage patty, amid rising popularity for the plant-based meat alternative.

The move comes one month after Tim Hortons, owned by Restaurant Brands International Inc. (QSR, QSR.TO), said it was testing Beyond Meat breakfast sandwiches at its select restaurants in Canada.

"Canadians are hungry to try our breakfast sandwiches made with Beyond Meat's 100% plant-based sausage patty. We've listened to our guests and are excited to be able to offer three delicious breakfast sandwiches that vegans, vegetarians, flexitarians and meat lovers can feel good about," said Mike Hancock, chief operations officer of Tim Hortons.

The sausage patty in the three new Beyond Meat Breakfast Sandwiches has been created to taste similar to the regular Tim Hortons sausage patty.

The three varieties being offered are Beyond Sausage Egg & Cheese, Beyond Sausage Farmer's Wrap, and Beyond Sausage Lettuce Tomato, which is an entirely vegan offering that does not have egg or cheese.

Tim Hortons is now the second fast-food chain in Canada to offer Beyond Meat products. Last year, Beyond Meat signed an agreement to serve its plant-based hamburgers at A&W restaurants.

Burger King, which is also owned by Restaurant Brands International, said in May that it has expanded the roll-out of its plant-based Impossible Whopper sandwich to three new cities in addition to its first city, St Louis.

The Impossible Whopper is a plant-based version of Burger King's Whopper Sandwich that uses an Impossible Burger for its patties.

Redwood City, California-based food startup Impossible Foods, a competitor to Beyond Meat, is the maker of the Impossible Burger.
