Americans reveal how they feel about the meatless protein trend at fast food restaurants
A growing number of fast-food chains in the U.S. have begun offering meatless or plant-based options on their menu. Research from Piplsay delves into people’s acceptance of and excitement around this food trend.
During the past few years, the meatless and plant-based phenomenon has gone from being a highly speculative curiosity to an in-demand food item, available not just in grocery stores but also dished out over the counters of popular fast-food chains across the country. Given this new shift toward a vegetarian or vegan diet, how keen are Americans on this new trend? Piplsay polled 30,700 people nationwide to get some insights. Of those surveyed, 71% are aware of the meatless and plant-based options that are available at fast food establishments, and 54% of those say they have tried it. Breaking it down further, 21% are meat eaters who have tried it once or twice; 18% are meat eaters that have tried it several times; 8% are vegans or vegetarians that have tried it several times; and 7% are vegans/vegetarians who have tried it once or twice. Of the 46% of respondents who have not tried the meatless options, 24% say they just have not tried it yet, and 22% say they are not interested in trying it. Of those who have tried these alternative meat options, 70% rate their experience as good, 18% say not so good and 12% say not good at all.
