McDonald’s To Begin Testing Plant-Based Burger at Eight U.S. Restaurant Locations

Oct. 18, 2021
McDonald’s is testing the McPlant in November, a plant-based product it has co-developed with Beyond Meat.

McDonald’s announced it was testing its McPlant burger in eight selected locations in November. The plant-based patty, which was co-developed with Beyond Meat, will be tested for a limited time. 

The locations where the fast food giant will be testing its plant-based burger starting November 3 include: Irving and Carrollton, Texas; Cedar Falls, Iowa; Jennings and Lake Charles, Louisiana; and El Segundo and Manhattan Beach, Calif. The McPlant burger has previously been introduced to markets in Sweden, Denmark, the Netherlands, Austria, and the UK throughout 2021. 

The sandwich, with its plant-based and vegan patty, will contain non-plant-based ingredients such as American cheese and mayonnaise and will be cooked on the same grill as meat-based products and eggs.
