Hungry Vegans around the USA are rejoicing! TGI Friday’s, not somewhere most vegans would associate as a place to go.

TGI Friday’s have joined the every growing amount of businesses who are jumping on the bandwagon and offering up the largest growing population what they want. Veganism!

TGI Friday’s found out just how many Americans wanted vegan options last month. When it conducted a soft launch of the Beyond Meat Vegan Burger. A meatless patty that’s been uncanny in its likeness to the real thing. After only a few weeks of a trial in Boston MA. TGI Friday’s were convinced they needed to move forward with plant based options. They will be introducing the Beyond Meat Vegan Burgers to more than 465 of the chain’s outposts beginning this January.

“We tested many concepts and The Beyond Burger was far and away the favorite plant-based burger among both our guests and chefs, making it the ideal addition to our popular Burger Bar,” Stephanie Perdue, TGI Friday’s Chief Marketing Officer has proclaimed.

Everyone knows what it’s like to be the only vegan at the table. We’re constantly choosing from the starters menu, or just eating the salad while starving away for some real food. So it’s an amazing step in the right direction and also an amazing addition to the already growing number of companies who are stepping up to the plate to cater to vegans. 2018 will be the rise of the vegans!

With growing groups on Facebook such as Ask A Vegan Dietitian, making life easier for people to become vegan in 2018 with meal plans and access to vegan dietitians 24/7. It’s no wonder that people are making the switch to a more plant-based lifestyle.

“TGI Friday’s is a staple in the American dining landscape, and we are thrilled they are bringing The Beyond Meat Vegan Burger to their customers. From the onset, The Beyond Meat Vegan Burger has been about delivering delicious, satiating, center-of-the-plate protein for the entire family to enjoy. I’m elated to see this vision come to fruition with TGI Friday’s,” said Ethan Brown, CEO and Founder of Beyond Meat.

“TGI Friday’s is constantly innovating to appeal to an array of tastes and lifestyles, which includes offering more options for vegetarians and meat-lovers alike,” said Stephanie Perdue, TGI Friday’s chief marketing officer. “We tested many concepts and The Beyond Meat Vegan Burger was far and away the favorite plant-based burger among both our guests and chefs, making it the ideal addition to our popular Burger Bar.”

    The bun is vegan. Just ask for no cheese or sauce.

    This burger is amazing.
