Beginning today, the Impossible Whopper will be available at local Burger King restaurants throughout the United States. They will also be available for delivery via the BK App and through DoorDash.
As previously reported by WAN, the fast-food chain, owned by Restaurant Brands International Inc., tested the new menu option at 59 Burger King’s in St. Louis, Missouri.
“We are really excited to be able to offer our new Impossible Whopper to our guests across the country at an unbeatable value for a limited time,” Chris Finazzo, President of Burger King Corporation North America, said in a statement. “Since we first launched our market tests in St. Louis in April, and later in six other markets across the country, we have heard great feedback and know the Impossible Whopper appeals to both current guests as well as new guests who are excited about this option.”
Before the nationwide launch of the Impossible Whopper, the Impossible burger was hard to find despite being in high demand.
Impossible Foods has since announced a co-manufacturing collaboration with global food processor OSI, which will begin producing Impossible Burgers at many of its plants.
This should address the availability issue but it is still not clear why the Impossible Whopper will only be available at national Burger King locations for a limited time.
As per Burger King, from August 8th to September 1st of this year, exclusively on DoorDash and the BK App, guests can order the Impossible Taste Test and receive both an Impossible Whopper and the original Whopper for only $7.00.
Additionally, and exclusively on DoorDash, guests can order the Impossible Whopper itself for $5.59 and also enjoy a $0 delivery fee when they use code IMPOSSIBLE between August 8th and September 1st. Customers can order on the DoorDash platform or through the app for Android or iOS.
