KFC’s vegan burger SELLS OUT across Birmingham in just four days

Written by on June 21, 2019

Due to phenomenal demand, KFC’s vegan burger is now sold out.

In just fours days, the Imposter Burger clocked up staggering sales figures – around 500% higher than a normal new KFC burger.

Excited vegans, veggies, flexitarian and intrigued chicken fans winged their way to restaurants across London, Bristol and The Midlands to get their hands on one.

The Gloucester Road restaurant in London sold roughly one Imposter Burger a minute on Wednesday.

Due to this phenomenal demand, the burger is now sold out – but fans need not despair, as it will be returning from July 2.

Birmingham’s Great Bridge Retail Park KFC restaurant is among the eateries taking part in the trial.

Victoria Robertson, Senior Innovation Leader at KFC said: “We knew there were plenty of people who would want to get a taste of the Imposter, but we didn’t anticipate this phenomenal response!

“We can’t wait to get the Imposter back out in restaurants so vegans can get their finger lickin’ fix.”

The release of the Imposter Burger comes six months after vegans went crazy for the newly launched Greggs’ vegan sausage roll.

Most recently in April,  sandwich chain Subway launched its first ever Vegan Sub.

The Imposter Burger costs £2.99. The Quorn fillet inside The Imposter Burger is also available as a wrap and salad.

Tony Davison, Head of Global Foodservice & QSR at Quorn said: “A vegan KFC? We couldn’t believe it either.

“But we’ve done it – working with KFC we’ve created a bespoke Quorn fillet that does the Colonel’s recipe justice. 

“We have no doubt that KFC fans are going to love the modern take on a finger lickin’ favourite.”
