The Beyond Burger is Now in Canada!
July 9, 2018
The wait for Canadians to be able to sink their teeth into our revolutionary Beyond Burger is officially over! A&W Canada is the FIRST national burger chain in Canada, and our LARGEST restaurant partner yet, to add our juicy, plant-based Beyond Burger to its menu. Starting today, July 9th, anyone can order it from nearly all 1,000 A&W Canada locations.
"We are a burger loving company with a lot of firsts, but this is the fastest new-product launch in our history," explains Susan Senecal, A&W Canada's President and Chief Executive Officer. "When we tried the Beyond Meat Burger we were amazed with how great it tasted and knew we had to be the first national burger chain to bring it to Canadians across the country."
A&W Canada (which is a separate entity from A&W in the United States) is the second-largest burger chain in Canada. We are so excited to partner with such an iconic brand who shares the same commitment to innovation and delighting the customer as we do, to bring Canadians a delicious, new burger experience.
Our CEO, Ethan Brown, recently sat down with Forbes to discuss the A&W Canada launch.
"We've always focused on making this product available to the largest number of people irrespective of socioeconomic status or geographic location. We want to be available in as many places as possible," Ethan said. "Being in A&W Canada puts us a step closer to that goal."
Canadians will be able to buy The Beyond Burger build for $6.99 or substitute a Beyond Burger patty on any of the classic A&W burgers for an additional cost.
