JUST, a company that applies cutting-edge science and technology to create healthier, more sustainable foods, announced today that it has partnered with Next Level Burger, America’s first 100 percent plant-based burger joint.

The delicious, protein-packed JUST Egg is now on the menu at all locations in in California, New York, Oregon, Texas, and Washington. JUST’s flavorful, filling patty is featured in the new “Brekky Burger” and is paired with vegan sausage, two slices of vegan bacon, cheese, lettuce, tomato and mayo on a sprouted seven grain bun.

“Like JUST, the team at Next Level Burger is driven by a sense of urgency to make the food we eat better for our families and better for the planet—and they’ve accomplished a lot in a few short years. I’m thrilled that JUST Egg is being served at their locations around the country and we look forward to hearing what people think of the delicious Brekky Burger—morning, noon, or night,” says Josh Tetrick, co-founder and CEO of JUST.

“We are stoked to offer the Brekky Burger, featuring the star of sustainability, JUST Egg patty— right now at Next Level Burger stores coast to coast,” says Next Level Burger CEO Matt de Gruyter, who co-founded the chain with his wife Cierra in Bend, Oregon in 2014.

Crafted by Michelin-starred chefs, JUST Egg is made from the 4,400-year-old mung bean and the baked patty version used by Next Level Burger has more protein than conventional chicken eggs. JUST Egg is free of cholesterol, saturated fat and artificial flavoring and its ingredients require less water and emit fewer carbon emissions than chicken eggs.

JUST Egg has won praise from notable chefs and culinarians and was among Fast Company’s “World Changing Ideas,” Popular Science’s “100 Greatest Innovations of 2018” and TIME’s “10 Smartest Sustainable Products of the Year.” JUST Egg (12 oz. liquid) is rolling out to retailers in the United States and select international markets and restaurants and foodservice operators can choose from both liquid and patty options.

Next Level Burger is redefining the classic American burger experience by offering flavor-packed, guilt-free healthy alternatives to the status quo. Recognized for a standout, unique menu stacked with reinvented favorites, Next Level Burger offers a variety of planet friendly choices—crave-worthy burgers, award-winning, dairy-free, diner-style milkshakes, plant-powered hot dogs, delicious sandwiches, salads, sides, and shareable plates.
