KFC Expands Vegan Fried Chicken To 70 Locations In The US

Last year Kentucky Fried Chicken announced that they partnered up with Beyond Meat to offer some plant-based alternatives to fried chicken. For one day, the vegan protein was sold at a KFC in Atlanta and the launch did gangbusters in numbers.

The restaurant sold out of the plant-based meat in less than five hours after opening its doors, with lines wrapped around the block with people waiting to get their vegan fix.


According to LiveKindly, KFC is bringing the Beyond Meat back to restaurants in 70 locations. This includes select cities such as Charlotte, Belmont, Salisbury, Lincolnton, Mint Hill, Davidson, and Nashville.

For anyone who missed the initial launch, KFC plans to expand this release even longer than the single day. The Beyond Chicken will be available from Feb. 2 through Feb. 23 while supplies last. During this time, you can order your vegan chicken with a dipping sauce or tossed in Honey BBQ, Buffalo, or Nashville Hot Sauce. They come in either 4-pieces, 12-pieces, or as combo options on the menu.
