More Details🧐 Beginning February 14th, 2022, McDonald’s plant-based burger the “McPlant”, will be rolled out to 600 locations in San Francisco & Dallas.
This is a big increase compared to the fast-food giant’s initial test trial, which sought to learn what this new offering would have on its operations.
Why is this Important🤔 McDonald’s is taking a cautious approach in entering the plant-based products industry. The new rollout seeks to test consumer demand for the McPlant burger, which will only be available for a limited time.
