Caribou Coffee Unveils New Breakfast Sandwich

    Industry News | March 4, 2021

    Caribou Coffee announced a new vegetarian breakfast sandwich addition to its menu starting Thursday, March 4. The new Beyond Meat Sausage with Egg & Mozzarella Sandwich is hearty and flavorful, built on an herb ciabatta roll with a plant-based Beyond Breakfast Sausage® Patty, cage-free fried egg patty and topped with a slice of natural mozzarella cheese. This sandwich is available exclusively at Caribou Coffee locations nationwide.

    Beyond Breakfast Sausage is a plant-based patty made with savory herbs and spices to deliver the same juicy, meaty taste and texture as pork breakfast sausage patties, while being better for people and the planet. Beyond Breakfast Sausage patties are made from simple, plant-based ingredients, like peas and brown rice, without GMOs, bioengineered ingredients, soy, or gluten so that consumers can eat what they love while enjoying the nutritional and environmental benefits of plant-based meat.

    “We’re always looking for new, innovative choices to meet our guests’ needs,” says Andrew Kraus, Director of Product Innovation at Caribou Coffee. “Caribou’s food menu includes gluten-free and vegetarian menu items today, and with an increased demand in the marketplace for plant-based options, we knew we wanted to provide a great-tasting option for our guests.” Kraus explains.

    “We are excited to partner with Caribou Coffee on their new breakfast sandwich offering,” said Tim Smith, VP Foodservice Sales, Beyond Meat. “The introduction of the Beyond Meat® Sausage with Egg & Mozzarella Sandwich is a testament to Beyond Meat and Caribou Coffee’s common goal of providing consumers with satisfying, craveable and better-for-you meal offerings.”

    The Beyond Breakfast Sausage Patty in Caribou Coffee’s new breakfast sandwich has:

    • 50 percent less total fat, 35 percent less saturated fat and 30 percent less sodium than a leading brand of pork breakfast sausage patties
    • No cholesterol, antibiotics or hormones
    • No GMOs, soy or gluten
    • Kosher and Halal Certification

    Caribou Coffee’s new Beyond Meat Sausage with Egg & Mozzarella sandwich will be added to the menu starting Thursday, March 4. It is 420 calories of feel-good, plant-based power to fuel you through your day.
