Burger King’s Vegan Impossible Whopper to be Available Nationwide by End of 2019

Earlier this month Burger King created a media storm by announcing the launch of the Impossible Whopper in certain Missouri locations. Now the company has announced that the vegan burger will soon be available across the nation.

According to a press release Burger King plans to make the Impossible Whopper – made with the plant-based Impossible Burger – available at all of their over 7,000 locations across the U.S. by the end of this year. The announcement comes after a successful test-launch in 59 St. Louis locations. Burger King plans to expand to other test markets throughout the year before the nationwide launch.

“The Impossible Whopper test in St. Louis went exceedingly well and as a result, there are plans to extend testing into additional markets in the very near future,” Burger King said in their press release. “Burger King restaurants in St. Louis are showing encouraging results and Impossible Whopper sales are complementing traditional Whopper purchases.”

The Impossible Whopper comes with lettuce, tomatoes, mayonnaise, onions, ketchup and pickles, on a sesame-seed bun. This can easily be made vegan by removing the mayonnaise.
