Beginning this week, KFC will begin testing a plant-based chicken alternative from Beyond Meat in an Atlanta restaurant.
Yum Brands, which owns KFC, says the test will mark the first national U.S. fast-food chain to serve a Beyond chicken item. Earlier this year Beyond pulled its vegan chicken from grocery stores after determining it was not up to standards.
KFC says it will consider customer feedback to determine if the product will launch on a broader scale. KFC’s plant-based chicken alternatives include nuggets and boneless wings.
