Starbucks: Take the Next Step and Offer a Vegan Food Menu!

Starbucks was one of the first national coffee chains to offer soy milk, and in the past year, the company has also added coconut milk to its menu as well as announced the expansion of its Animal Welfare-Friendly Practices. In light of these positive steps forward, Starbucks should continue its progress by taking the next step: offer vegan food options!      Right now, a growing number of consumers looking for dairy-free coffee beverages can turn to Starbucks for soy milk or coconut milk – but that’s where Starbuck’s menu falls short.  Plant-based food options are limited to oatmeal and a few pre-packaged fruit-based snacks. By expanding its food menu to include hearty meat-, egg-, and dairy-free options such as vegan muffins or a protein-packed breakfast sandwich, Starbucks would give existing customers more choices while also reaching out to a new customer-base. This simple change will allow so many more customers to add a breakfast item with their coffee, stay for lunch, enjoy a pastry, or grab some food to go. Recent market trend research shows that vegan eating is hitting the mainstream. A recent restaurant industry journal noted that “Millennials are increasingly interested in vegan cuisine, and more than 60 percent consume meat alternatives.” Consumer interest in plant-based food and drink has become so widespread that Starbucks acknowledges that its decision to add coconut milk was based on customer requests – it was one of the “most popular My Starbucks Ideas of all time!” Other national chains similar to Starbucks are already responding to the consumer interest in plant-based options. For example, in addition to dairy-free milk for coffee, Le Pain Quotidien’s menu features several hearty vegan options from breakfast through dessert, Au Bon Pain has a daily vegan soup, and Einstein Bros Bagels offers hummus or peanut butter toppings for bagels. It is clear that consumer demand is shifting towards healthier and more humane foods, and Starbucks has taken the first steps to respond. Now it’s time for the company to take the next step -- and take the lead -- by offering a substantial plant-based food options.  Starbucks has already shown that it listens to consumer requests, so please sign this petition to let the company know that you appreciate the dairy-free milk options, and you’re ready for a vegan food menu!

Urge Domino’s Pizza to Offer Plant-Based Cheese Nationally!

Being in college, it’s a great time for my friends and I to seek out pizza when we’re out on the town. As customers who care about our planet and who need to pay attention to allergies and diets, we like to find plant-based cheese in our pizza restaurants. More often than not, it’s easy to find at even our most local pizza joints.  But despite this local accessibility, and the global demand for plant-based cheese, prominent pizza chain Domino’s Pizza has failed to join competitors and listen to its consumers in 2020. As customers who want to shop our values and our diets, this is a massive missed opportunity for Domino’s, one of the country’s biggest chains. And my friends and I want them to act. Sign and share to ask Domino’s Pizza to join the times and offer plant-based cheese throughout its national supply chain! It is estimated that 30 to 50 million Americans are lactose intolerant. Not only is health a concern but dairy cows produce greenhouse gas emissions which contribute to climate change. And animals in the dairy industry also suffer tremendously.  Plant-based cheese would not only be better for the environment, our health and animal welfare but also because it will be a pristine business opportunity for Domino’s Pizza.  The plant-based market overall is predicted to reach a value of $140 billion by 2029 according to the financial firm Barclays. Nielsen data shows that nearly 40% of Americans are trying to incorporate more plant-based foods into their diets. 63% of millennials identify as flexitarian, eating mainly plant-based diets, according to sales and marketing firm Acosta. What this all means is the people are demanding plant-based products. So why is Domino’s Pizza the last to know what their consumers are asking for? Tell Domino’s Pizza the time is now to listen to consumer demand and carry plant-based cheese throughout its national supply chain!

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!
