Del Taco Expands Beyond Meat Options in SoCal

12.12.18

Del Taco, the first Mexican fast food chain to offer Beyond Meat’s plant-based protein option, will be testing Beyond Tacos starting Thursday, Dec. 13---made with Del Taco’s seasoned Beyond Meat recipe – at 16 locations in San Diego, and five in Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, and San Bernardino counties.

In Orange County, the first location to offer Beyond Meat options is at 23781 El Toro Road in Lake Forest.

“With a growing demand for vegan and vegetarian options among our guests, we saw an opportunity within the space to partner with Beyond Meat to develop a proprietary blend of seasoned, 100 percent plant-based meat,” said John Cappasola, President and Chief Executive Officer of Del Taco. “After receiving overwhelmingly positive feedback from fans during our pilot test in Los Angeles, it only made sense to introduce our Beyond Tacos to a larger SoCal community.”

Guests in the test cities can now try one of the brand’s new Beyond Tacos which offer the same amount of protein and flavor as seasoned beef but are made with 100 percent plant-based protein. Beyond Meat is also being offered as a substitute for any protein in existing Del Taco menu items, such as burritos, nachos, and fries.

Beyond Avocado Taco (vegan): Seasoned Beyond Meat plant-based crumbles, hand-sliced avocado, crisp lettuce and fresh diced tomatoes in a crunchy shell.

Beyond Taco (vegetarian): Seasoned Beyond Meat plant-based crumbles, hand-grated cheddar cheese, crisp lettuce and fresh diced tomatoes in a crunchy shell.
