Change.org Petition Telling Wendy’s to Carry a Plant-Based Burger Garners 25,143 Signatures In Under a Month


Yet another petition calling for a fast food company to adopt plant-based options is gaining traction on Change.org. Tell Wendy’s to Carry a plant-based Burger Nationally! has garnered 25,143 signatures and counting in under a month.

Lana Weidgenant, the college student whose Dunkin’ petition helped convince the company that customers wanted a Beyond Meat breakfast option, now wants Wendy’s to join the plant-based movement. Wendy’s tested a black bean burger in 2015, but currently offers no plant-based version of its famous square patties. 

Supporters of the idea have reason to be optimistic. During Wendy’s 2019 second quarter earnings call in August, CEO Todd Penegor left the door open stating, “Clearly there is growth out there in plant-based proteins and we believe that it is a trend that will be here to stay. We’re taking a hard look at what the options would be for us at the restaurant.” He added, “Our culinary team continues to look at various options. It is probably something we need to look at, and will look at, into the future.”
