Fast food franchises Carl’s Jr and Hardees (both chains owned by the same parent company CKE) plan to offer consumers new breakfast options that feature plant-based meats. In an announcement on Wednesday, CKE announced that Carl’s Jr has seen considerable success with its existing Beyond Famous Star burgers, which features plant-based patties, at more than 6.7 million units sold, making it the company’s most successful product in two years.
Carl’s Jr. and its Hardee’s counterpart located on the eastern half of the United States will use Beyond Meat for new plant-based food options. These new options will collectively cover breakfast, lunch, and dinner, according to CKE, which says that Hardee’s will be getting four new food products and Carl’s Jr will be getting two new food products.
