DEL TACO INTRODUCES BEYOND TACOS NATIONWIDE
April 15, 2019
Awesome things come to those who wait... starting TODAY, April 25th, Beyond Tacos are coming to ALL Del Taco locations nationwide, making them the first national Mexican fast-food chain to offer Beyond Meat at the company’s 580 restaurants across the country.
“After receiving overwhelmingly positive feedback from fans during our tests in various parts of the country and across social media, we knew it was time to bring our Beyond Tacos to guests nationwide,” said John Cappasola, President and Chief Executive Officer of Del Taco. “We saw a unique opportunity to develop our own recipe in partnership with Beyond Meat, adding various spices to create a signature Del Taco taste consumers can’t get anywhere else.”
From busy families on-the-go or taco enthusiasts who want to try something new, Del Taco fans can now try the company’s new Beyond Tacos,** which offer the same amount of protein and flavor as their seasoned beef tacos, but are made with Beyond Meat’s 100 percent plant-based crumbles. The Beyond Tacos are a great way to fuel up without feeling weighed down.
In addition to the core Beyond Taco items, customers can request Beyond Meat as a substitute for a protein in existing Del Taco menu items, such as burritos, nachos and fries. Del Taco’s two initial Beyond Meat menu items will include:
- Beyond Avocado Taco (vegan): Del Taco seasoned Beyond Meat plant-based crumbles, hand-sliced avocado, crisp lettuce and fresh diced tomatoes in a crunchy shell.
- Beyond Taco (vegetarian): Del Taco seasoned Beyond Meat plant-based crumbles, hand-grated cheddar cheese, crisp lettuce and fresh diced tomatoes in a crunchy shell.
The future of tacos is here. #GoBeyond
