Muscle Maker Grill Introduces the Impossible Burger

February 18, 2019

BURLESON, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb 18, 2019--Muscle Maker Grill, the fast-casual restaurant brand, which promotes a healthy lifestyle by offering nutritious alternatives to traditional dishes, today announced the addition of the plant-based Impossible Burger, which delivers unprecedented taste, nutrition and versatility compared to beef.

Impossible Burger cooks, smells and tastes like  meat from cows, but is made directly from plants -- for people who love meat. Compared to the cow, Impossible Burger production uses a small fraction of the land and water resources and emits vastly fewer greenhouse gas emissions.

Muscle Maker Grill’s healthier burger bar menu allows guests to enjoy a burger while keeping macros top of mind. Guests can now choose from five nutritionally packed protein options, grass-fed beef, turkey, all natural chicken breast, a traditional veggie burger, and the new Impossible burger. The burgers are offered in five builds: Mushroom Supreme, California Club, Classic, Jalapeño and the Recovery burger. The burgers are served on whole wheat buns and come with a side of baked sweet potato fries. Burger dressings include healthier options such as avocado, reduced fat mayo, turkey bacon and reduced fat cheeses.

“We’re thrilled to partner with Muscle Maker Grill to offer the Impossible Burger for guests to enjoy as part of the healthier menu. There’s no question that they’ll be impressed by its rich texture and taste,” said Impossible Foods’ Chief Operating Officer and Chief Financial Officer David Lee. “The Impossible Burger remains in high demand with consumers, and we look forward to Muscle Maker Grill joining as one of our newest partners to serve it.”

Mushroom Supreme – Part skim mozzarella, sautéed mushrooms and onions and lettuce on a whole wheat bun

California Club – Avocado, turkey bacon, reduced fat mayo, lettuce, tomato, and onion on a whole wheat bun

Classic – Reduced fat cheddar, turkey bacon, zero-carb signature sauce, lettuce, tomato, and onion on a whole wheat bun

Jalapeño – Sliced jalapeño, cajun seasoning, part skim mozzarella cheese, reduced fat mayo, lettuce, tomato, and onion on a whole wheat bun

Recovery – Fried egg, reduced fat cheddar cheese, and turkey bacon on a whole wheat bun

“We wanted to offer our guests another protein option that has all of the characteristics of a traditional beef burger, without using animal protein. The environmental benefits are an added value that we know our guests will get behind,” said Michael Roper, Chief Executive Officer for Muscle Maker Grill.

The healthier burger bar menu is served at participating Muscle Maker Grill locations. Prices vary by locations.
