Watch for these informative features in our September/October 2019 issue:*

BEYOND THE BURGER: The offering of plant-based burgers is one of the hottest trends in the QSR sector today. Reacting to this trend, QSR franchises across the world are looking to implement vegetarian options into their menus. The recent spike in interest comes from “meatless meat” options that are not being marketed specifically towards vegetarians and vegans, but to the public at large. We take a look at a group of franchise systems getting in on this trend as they begin to offer consumers plant-based, vegetarian, and vegan options.
