Popeyes: Listen to consumer demand and release plant-based chicken!

Whenever I have time, I enjoy eating a meal out with friends and family. And there’s one fast-food chain now that’s getting so much buzz: Popeyes. As people around the country wait in lines at Popeyes, I can’t join them, nor can millions of other customers. That’s because Popeyes is a company falling behind the times in offering accessibility to plant-based options. As one of the most-talked-about fast-food restaurants out there right now, will you join me in calling on Popeyes to step up and add a plant-based chicken sandwich to their menu? One of Popeyes biggest competitors, KFC, has already tested out a plant-based chicken option in one of their Atlanta locations. Sales were through the roof. The plant-based chicken was so popular that it sold out in five hours! KFC sold as many plant-based boneless wings as they would sell popcorn chicken in an entire week. It is very clear consumers are demanding plant-based chicken!  With over 2,400 locations, Popeyes is one of the largest fried chicken chains in the United States. Many restaurants near me have accommodations for all different diet restrictions. But there are many communities that still don’t have access to plant-based options and are surrounded by similar fast-food chains. Fortunately, many fast-food restaurants such as Burger King, Dunkin’, White Castle and many others have been adding plant-based options to their menus. Now it is time for Popeyes to do the same! Sign and share to ask Popeyes to join 2019 and offer plant-based chicken in their supply chain! Many people are interested in trying out plant-based options for numerous reasons. The growth of plant-based protein and meat alternatives is projected to increase from $4.6 billion to $85 billion in 2030. Popeye’s has a tremendous opportunity to catch up to its competitors by providing a plant-based chicken option. Tell Popeyes the time to act on consumer demands now!

Dunkin’ Donuts: The Time is Now to Offer Beyond Sausage!

As a teenager, I loved stopping by Dunkin’ Donuts before school to grab an iced coffee and a donut. But as my diet changed for animal welfare and the planet, I am no longer able to enjoy a Dunkin' breakfast treat. You can imagine my excitement when I heard they were considering adding a plant-based breakfast sausage to their menu. I would love to become a regular customer again if Dunkin’ were to follow Tim Hortons - Canada’s iconic coffee and breakfast chain - in offering the Beyond Breakfast Sausage at its national locations. Sign and share today to urge Dunkin’ to follow Tim Hortons in becoming the first U.S. chain to offer Beyond Meat Breakfast Sausage. If Dunkin’ doesn’t launch a plant-based sausage, the breakfast chain will lose an enormous opportunity to join the massive plant-based meat trend. There is a large and growing consumer demand for the Beyond Sausage and Dunkin’ Donuts will fall behind the times if they do not offer plant-based options in a year when 39% of consumers in the United States say they are actively trying to incorporate more plant-based foods into their diet. The plant-based industry generates over $13 billion in sales annually throughout the US economy which is showcasing that people want change in the foodservice industry. Restaurants including Tim Hortons, TGI Fridays, Del Taco, Carl’s Jr, and BurgerFi are already offering Beyond Meat as a way to be plant-based accessible and tap into the growing demand and popularity of plant-based eating and even Burger King came out with a plant-based burger across national locations. The Beyond Sausage would also bring great financial gains to Dunkin’ Donuts. Beyond Meat shares have soared over 258% from their original IPO price and were worth 1.5 billion dollars in their market debut. Beyond Meat reports that their products are available in over 35,000 outlets and that sales have been growing fast - with revenue from 2018 at $87.9 million, an increase of $55.3 million from the previous year’s revenue. The time is now for Dunkin’ Donuts to join 2019 and offer the Beyond Sausage nationally!

Add vegan hot lunch for Portland, ME schools

Portland, Maine is a progressive city with a diverse student body that includes many students who are vegetarian and vegan. In addition, large numbers of students suffer from dairy allergies and intolerances, and others come from cultural and religious backgrounds that eat vegan or vegetarian on various days throughout the year. However, the school lunch program is failing to meet the nutrition needs of these students because its meals rely too heavily on meat and dairy.  We the undersigned parents, grandparents, students, teachers, taxpayers and community members ask the Food Service Director to add daily vegan hot lunch options that are made from whole foods ingredients and are entirely plant-based. We applaud the one vegan hot lunch the district serves - vegetable chili - and want to see many more meals like this one added. http://bit.ly/2MjESm7 Whole foods, plant-based menu items meet all the USDA guidelines and are packed with flavor, fiber and nutrition.  Other districts that have added daily vegan hot lunch options have been surprised to discover that the meals are quite popular and that most of the vegan meals are being ordered by non-vegans. Parents and students love the Portland Public Schools and the rich, educational experience they provide. The one area where the community is not happy is hot lunch.    Currently, only half of the students in the district order hot lunch on any given day. It's clear that the school lunch program is failing half of the district's students.   While meat- and dairy-based meals serve the needs of some students, vegan meals are for everyone.
