Corner Bakery Adds Beyond Meat Items to Menu

    Industry News | September 21, 2020

    The fan-favorite Corner Bakery launched two new menu items featuring meatballs made with Beyond Beef. Made from simple, plant-based ingredients without GMOs, soy or gluten, Beyond Beef is packed with protein and designed to deliver the authentic, delicious taste and texture of traditional meatballs, no sacrifice required. Every meatball that Corner Bakery prepares is hand-crafted and rolled to perfection, combining Beyond Beef with savory elements like herbs, garlic, Parmesan and breadcrumbs and will be featured in two new, irresistible menu items:

    Beyond Meatball Panini – Beyond Beef meatballs, provolone, marinara sauce, grilled sourdough.

    Beyond Meatball Linguine – Beyond Beef meatballs, Parmesan, linguine, marinara sauce.

    Corner Bakery tested these Beyond Meat menu items in December 2019 at five select Los Angeles locations. Following an overwhelmingly positive consumer response in which the product sold out quickly, Corner Bakery is now expanding its partnership with Beyond Meat to offer its plant-based Beyond Beef at their cafes nationwide.

    Guests interested in trying the items can get 50% off either Beyond Meatball entrée from Sept. 21-27.

    Additionally, Corner Bakery wants to invite their guests to join in this exciting endeavor to Go Beyond at Corner Bakery. Beginning tomorrow, Sept. 22, Corner Bakery will encourage their social media fans to try the product and post a photo or video using the hashtag #beyondxcornerbakery. Each week for three weeks, Corner Bakery will gift one user some Beyond Meat swag and a $100 Corner Bakery gift card.

    “We are very excited to serve delicious, craft-made menu items to our guests that are looking for an approachable, nutritious, craveable plant-based protein option,” said Donna Josephson, senior vice president and chief marketing officer of Corner Bakery. “By offering a Beyond Beef meatball that is full of flavor with simple, plant-based ingredients in two of our dishes, we are enhancing our guests’ experience and ensuring we meet the needs of everyone who walks through our doors.”
