Canada has spoken…and they LOVE the new Beyond Meat burger at A&W. The vegan burger launched nationwide at A&W locations across Canada on July 9th, only to experience a Canadian-wide shortage on the patties within a week. The shortage causing many locations to have to put up signs of notice that they were sold out.

A&W is the first “fast-food” chain to offer the Beyond Meat burger on their menu. Perhaps a surprise that the vegan menu was so popular, but with 6% of the population identifying as vegan, and then a huge influx of curious or more health and environmentally conscious diners, the burger was a hit.

One location made this statement on Instagram about the shortage: “We are out of Beyond Burgers. Due to a Canada-wide shortage and the extreme popularity of [the burger], we have run out,” the company posted on Instagram. “Many stores may still have them. We will continue serving them as soon as we can get more. Thank you for making our new burger a success.”

A&W isn’t the only place to be hit by the shortage. American’s are experiencing the shortage too at Whole Foods, as they announced 2 days ago a shortage themselves.

Here’s some good news though: with the influx in demand for the burgers, Beyond Meat has announced a new production facility opening a new factory in Missouri. The new facility will help increase production of the Beyond Meat line and allow for expansion.
