HOPDODDY BURGER BAR GOES ‘BEYOND MEAT®’ WITH NEW PARTNERSHIP
All Hopdoddy locations are shifting to the Beyond Burger® as their exclusive plant-based burger offering and marking the occasion with the August Burger of the Month – Beyond a Reuben
AUSTIN, Texas (Aug. 3, 2021) – Hopdoddy Burger Bar is furthering its commitment to serving the best-tasting, highest-quality burgers by shifting to Beyond Meat® as its plant-based meat partner at all Hopdoddy locations. With this launch, Hopdoddy becomes one of the first restaurant groups to offer the new even meatier, even juicier Beyond Burger®, the newest iteration of the popular Beyond Burger.
Hopdoddy will celebrate the new partnership with its August Burger of the Month, the all-new Beyond a Reuben burger, featuring a Beyond Burger patty topped with pastrami-spiced mushrooms, Gruyere cheese, Dijon mustard, sauerkraut, pickles and Russian dressing on a fresh-baked caraway-seeded bun.
“At Hopdoddy, we are all about offering the finest ingredients available, from our Chipperbec fries to our certified all-natural Piedmontese beef and now, our plant-based Beyond Burger that’s made without GMOs,” said Hopdoddy Head Chef Matt Schweitzer. “After tasting Beyond Meat’s newest Beyond Burger patty, we were blown away by how juicy and delicious it was, making it a great addition to the variety of proteins we offer.”
Like all Beyond Meat products, the Beyond Burger contains simple, plant-based ingredients and no GMOs, hormones, antibiotics or cholesterol. It features 20 grams of protein derived from peas and brown rice and has 35% less fat and saturated fat and fewer calories than traditional 80/20 ground beef patties. The Beyond Burger patty can also be substituted in any Hopdoddy burger. Other vegan options at Hopdoddy include a vegan wheat bun, mayo and cheese and the El Bandito veggie patty.
“Our shared vision for offering consumers absolutely delicious burgers made from only the best, high-quality ingredients makes this partnership a strong alignment of brands. We made impressive advancements in taste and nutrition in our newest Beyond Burger iteration, and we’re excited to bring it to Hopdoddy’s menus and loyal burger-loving fans,” said Deanna Jurgens, Chief Growth Officer, Beyond Meat.
As part of the new partnership, Hopdoddy is taking over Beyond Meat food trucks in Dallas, Los Angeles and other cities across the country to give Beyond Burgers a Hopdoddy twist. Dates, times and locations will be shared in the coming months via Hopdoddy’s Facebook, Instagram and Twitter @hopdoddy.
