KFC has teamed up with Beyond Meat to offer plant-based fried chicken at its restaurants across the U.S., beginning on January 10.

The limited-edition Beyond Fried Chicken was developed exclusively for KFC that mimics the franchise’s iconic fried chicken.

“The mission from day one was simple – make the world-famous Kentucky Fried Chicken from plants,” said Kevin Hochman, president of KFC U.S. “And now over two years later we can say, ‘mission accomplished.’”

The company successfully tested its first iteration of Beyond Fried Chicken in August 2019 during a limited test run in Atlanta — with stores selling out in less than five hours. In 2020, the two companies expanded the test to select restaurants in Nashville and Charlotte.

The Beyond Fried Chicken is served with any KFC dipping sauce and is available as a plant-based combo meal with Secret Recipe Fries and a medium drink or in six or 12-piece orders. Prices start at $6.99 USD and vary by location.

Beyond Meat has continued to expand its meatless restaurant offerings, releasing its chicken tenders in July at restaurants across the U.S. In October, the company partnered with Panda Express to release a plant-based Orange Chicken.

In other news, this crypto-themed restaurant in Florida is selling Dogedogs and Crypto Cuban sandwiches.
