KFC to sell plant-based nuggets in more than 60 restaurants


KFC, the nation’s largest fried chicken chain, announced it would be rolling out plant-based Beyond Meat nuggets at more than 60 restaurants in the Charlotte and Nashville areas.

If it is successful, KFC plans to offer the item at all locations.

KFC had a successful one-day test of its Beyond Meat nuggets in Atlanta in August of 2019. This test will be three weeks long.

The product will go on sale at KFC on Monday. The nuggets are pea-based and it will be sold in packages of four, eight and 12.
