Tim Hortons has launched two new veggie sandwiches featuring the vegan Beyond Burger patty in its almost 4,000 stores nationwide.

The sandwich features the patty alongside processed cheese, fresh tomato slices, shredded lettuce, ketchup, mustard and mayonnaise. A BBQ version subs BBQ sauce for the ketchup.

According to VegNews, the burgers can be veganized by ditching the cheese and mayo, and requesting Tim Hortons’ vegan biscuit instead of the standard bun.

Beyond burger

“We’re excited to be able to offer our guests a burger for the very first time,” Mike Hancock, Chief Operating Officer, Tim Hortons said in a statement.

“With nearly 4,000 Tim Hortons locations across the country, we are the largest quick service restaurant in Canada to add the Beyond Burger to our menu and at just $5.69, at one of the most affordable price points as well.

“Our guests are looking for more options, and the Beyond Burger is a delicious addition that doesn’t compromise on taste or satisfaction.”

Lunch and dinner option

“Following the success of the Beyond Meat Breakfast Sandwich launch, we wanted to partner with Tim Hortons to offer Canadians a delicious plant-based lunch and dinner option,” Ethan Brown, Founder and CEO of Beyond Meat, added.

“With more and more Canadians interested in incorporating plant-based proteins into their diet, we are excited to be able to make our Beyond Burger available at Tim Hortons restaurants across Canada.”

The burgers are available now, priced from $5.69. (Prices vary by region, plus applicable taxes).
