Sheetz has announced that it is the first continental U.S. convenience chain to introduce the plant-based Beyond Burger, which is now available at all of its store locations.
The new Sheetz Beyond Burger offers on-the-go customers a protein packed, 100% plant-based meat option but with the same delicious taste and texture of a traditional beef burger. In a continuation of giving customers what they want, when they want it and how they want it, Sheetz’s new Beyond Burger can be customized with over 47 options including seven different bread choices, seven different cheese choices, 20 different toppings and 13 different spreads.
“Sheetz is constantly innovating and adding new menu items to give our customers what they want, when they want it, 24/7,” said Dan Coffin, lead chef and AVP of culinary development at Sheetz. “As demand for healthier, diverse protein options increases, we are excited to add the Beyond Burger to our menu in our continual mission to be the ultimate one-stop-shop.”
Coffin called Beyond Meat the industry leader in plant-based meats.
Tim Smith, vice president of sales, food service, North America, at Beyond Meat, said the company is excited to bring the Beyond Burger to all Sheetz locations nationwide in an effort to continue its mission of making plant-based meat accessible to everyone.
“We’re all about providing options and the launch of the Beyond Burger at Sheetz will provide busy, on-the-go Sheetz customers with a plant-based option that doesn’t sacrifice the meaty taste and texture they crave in a burger,” Smith said.
The new Sheetz Beyond Burger is now available at all 597 Sheetz locations. Retail price starts at $6.99 and will vary by customization and toppings.
Sheetz operates stores throughout Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Virginia, Maryland, Ohio and North Carolina.
