The craveable, flame-grilled, plant-based Impossible™ WHOPPER® will be available at over 7,000 BK® locations for a limited-time only
MIAMI–(BUSINESS WIRE)–BURGER KING® restaurants announced today that it is bringing the plant-based Impossible™ WHOPPER® sandwich nationwide this month. Starting on August 8, guests across the nation will be able to visit their local BK® restaurant, or order for delivery via the BK® App and through DoorDash, to try the Impossible™ WHOPPER® for a limited time only and decide for themselves if it delivers the same flame-grilled, juicy craveability of the famous WHOPPER® sandwich.
The Impossible™ WHOPPER® is 100% Whopper, 0% beef. It features a flame-grilled patty made from plants topped with freshly sliced tomatoes and onions, crisp lettuce, creamy mayonnaise, ketchup and zesty pickles on a toasted sesame seed bun.
“We are really excited to be able to offer our new Impossible™ WHOPPER® to our guests across the country at an unbeatable value for a limited time,” said Chris Finazzo, President, North America, Burger King Corporation. “Since we first launched our market tests in St. Louis in April, and later in six other markets across the country, we’ve heard great feedback and know the Impossible™ WHOPPER® appeals to both current guests who are already big fans of the WHOPPER® sandwich, as well as new guests who are excited about this new option. Starting next week, guests across the country will be able to try this this plant-based, flame-grilled sandwich which is true to the original WHOPPER® sandwich that our guests know and love.”
Before the nationwide launch of the Impossible™ WHOPPER®, the Impossible™ burger was hard to find despite being in high demand and that often led to fans going to social media to find where to find the Impossible™ burger is available. In a new video YouTube.com/BurgerKing, BK® found fans to come to the grand opening of what they thought would be a restaurant that only serves the Impossible™ burger. The outside of the location looked like an Impossible foods restaurants, but it was really a BURGER KING® restaurant in disguise. Fans were surprised but delighted when they walked inside and saw it was actually a BK® restaurant and realized that they could now purchase an Impossible™ WHOPPER® at over 7,000 BK® locations across the country to satisfy their Impossible™ craving.
