Del Taco First Fast-Food Drive Thru to Launch Beyond Meat Crumbles


Mexican-inspired fast food chain Del Taco is testing vegan Beyond Meat crumbles at two of its Los Angeles, California locations. The collaboration between the two SoCal-based brands marks the first time that Beyond Meat’s meatless crumbles are offered at a U.S. drive-through restaurant. Del Taco is also the first Mexican fast-food restaurant to serve Beyond Meat.According to the company, Del Taco plans to expand nationwide following the soft launch in LA. The Lake Forest, California-based fast-food chain has 564 locations nationwide. While this marks the first instance that Beyond Meat is available at a Mexican-American fast-food establishment, it is also available on the menu of New York City-based Mexican fast-casual chain, Oaxaca Taqueria, which added the brand’s plant-based protein to the menu in a bid to be more sustainable.
