The Beyond Famous Star, launched last December, has been the most successful burger launch for Carl’s Jr. in the past two years, selling a groundbreaking 4.5 million Beyond Famous Stars to date. We’re beyond excited to share that Carl’s Jr. is expanding our partnership to launch another innovative new menu item – The Beyond BBQ Cheeseburger, available starting tomorrow, October 9, at all participating locations. 

A spin-off of its iconic and best-selling Western Bacon Cheeseburger, the Beyond BBQ Cheeseburger is stacked high with a Beyond Burger patty, Carl’s Jr. original BBQ sauce, American cheese and crispy onion rings, all on a fluffy sesame seed bun. 

“After seeing the overwhelming demand for our Beyond Famous Star, in true Carl’s Jr. fashion we knew it was time to give customers even more plant-based innovations to delight their taste buds. With one Western Bacon Cheeseburger sold every second, we saw this as the perfect flavor inspiration – and so the new Carl’s Jr. Beyond BBQ Cheeseburger was born,” shared Patty Trevino, SVP of Carl’s Jr. Brand Marketing.   

We look forward to expanding our partnership with Carl’s Jr. and providing even more people with delicious, plant-based, on-the-go options to satisfy all cravings.  

The new Beyond BBQ Cheeseburger will be available at Carl’s Jr. restaurants beginning October 9.
