Freebirds spices up plant-based options

Wednesday, July 25, 2018

Freebirds World Burrito, the funky, fast-casual concept known for its customizable, larger-than-life burritos, is the largest multi-unit restaurant to roll out Beyond Meat’s pea-based protein across the U.S.

Freebirds fans can now enjoy Beyond Meat’s gluten-free, soy-free, plant-based protein, mixed with potatoes and spices in made-to-order burritos, tacos, nachos, quesadillas, bowls and salads. Designed to look, cook and taste like ground beef with half the fat and no cholesterol or antibiotics, Beyond Meat offers a healthier meat alternative with satisfying, bold flavor for vegans and omnivores alike.

The decision to partner with Beyond Meat stems from a rising consumer demand for better plant-based protein options that deliver health and environmental benefits without compromising great taste or texture. 

An industry gamechanger, Beyond Meat’s cutting-edge process organizes each of its plant-based ingredients to deliver against the unique texture of meat. By braiding together proteins, fats and minerals, Beyond Meat recreates the basic architecture, and thus texture, of meat to build the perfect plant-based protein.

Freebirds World Burrito has made its mark through an original approach to creating fresh, made-to-order burritos, tacos, nachos, quesadillas, bowls and salads with a vast variety of options that satisfies every palate. The fast-casual trailblazer is proud to provide a high-energy, engaging atmosphere where "Tribe Members" – employees – go above and beyond to assist guests in creating the ultimate burrito experience. Freebirds World Burrito also offers one-of-a-kind catering experiences, fit to accommodate anywhere from 10 to 10,000 guests.
