Dunkin’ Donuts Is Rolling out Fake Meat at More Spots Than Any Other Chain

Beyond Breakfast

In July, Dunkin’ Donuts began offering customers in Manhattan a breakfast sandwich featuring a Beyond Meat sausage patty made from plant-based protein.

Soon after, Dunkin’ scheduled a nationwide rollout of the Beyond Sausage Sandwich for January. But customers must really be digging the sammie, because the chain has now announced it’s accelerating the launch by two months — a move that will seemingly bring fake meat to more restaurant menus than any before it.

Beat the Burger

Starting November 6, customers will be able to buy the Beyond Sausage Sandwich at more than 9,000 Dunkin’ Donuts locations across the United States.

That makes this rollout even more expansive than the recent partnership between Burger King and Beyond Meat competitor Impossible Foods, who teamed up to begin serving a plant-based Impossible Whopper at the fast-food chain’s more than 7,000 locations in August.

Free Taste

For those intrigued by the faux sausage patty, but not yet willing to risk a few bucks to try it, Dunkin’ is holding its “first-ever, multi-day sandwich-tasting event” on November 8 and 9.

From  8 a.m. until 10 a.m., customers at participating restaurants can receiving a free sample of the sandwich — but given the enthusiasm for other fast food launches of fake meat products, they might want to show up early as the offer is only good “while supplies last.”
