LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--FAT (Fresh. Authentic. Tasty.) Brands Inc. (NASDAQ: FAT) (“FAT Brands” or the “Company”), parent company of Elevation Burger, known for serving 100% organic, grass-fed, free-range beef burgers and fresh fries cooked in heart-healthy olive oil, is pleased to announce all domestic locations across America will now carry the plant-based Impossible™ Burger as well as dairy-free Daiya Cheddar Style Slices.
Elevation Burger’s nationwide launch of the Impossible Burger and dairy-free Daiya Cheddar Style Slices demonstrates the brand's commitment to serving customers of all dietary preferences. The Impossible™ Burger handles, cooks and tastes like ground beef — but is made entirely from plants — while each Daiya Cheddar Style Slice delivers the same incredible melt and slight sharpness as dairy-based cheese that pairs perfectly with the Impossible™ Burger or any Elevation Burger for a dairy-free option.
“We have seen the tremendous success of the Impossible Burger and of Daiya’s Cheddar Style Slices and recognize consumer demand within the plant-based and dairy-free space,” said FAT Brands CEO, Andy Wiederhorn. “This partnership was a natural fit that aligns with our brand pillars and we believe that these new menu items will provide consumers more ways to enjoy the delicious offerings of Elevation Burger.”
