Hot dog! Nathan’s Famous food company and restaurant chain announced its first vegan hot dog. The Coney Island hot dog is a partnership with The Meatless Farm and is made of pea protein-based sausage, with Nathan’s famous seasoning blend.
“As plant-based menu items continue to grow in popularity, we are excited to launch the first ever gourmet, plant-based hot dog, a product created not just for our flexitarian, vegetarian, and vegan customers, but all who enjoy a healthier diet,” James Walker, Senior Vice President of Nathan’s Famous Restaurants, said. “We’ve spent a great deal of time perfecting this hot dog and making sure that those who know and love Nathan’s one-of-a-kind flavor, as well as those that might not have tried a Nathan’s hot dog due to diet, can now enjoy an option that fits their lifestyle. We are looking forward to growing a new customer base with this partnership with Meatless Farm and know their high-quality ingredients are the way to deliver what our customers have come to expect of the original Nathan’s Famous hot dog.”
Right now, customers can purchase vegan hot dogs online, six plant-based hot dogs with buns and mustard, $49.99 for the package. Restaurants will have the vegan hot dog in northeast locations soon, where it retails for $4.99 per hot dog.
Other fast-food restaurants, including Starbucks, Carl’s Jr., Pizza Hut, KFC, and others have added plant-based options to their menus recently.
