james lewis, who wox'n mkt and product development for a london vegan restaurant, told the guardian that burger king’s experiment cogitates the public’s embrace of vegetarianism. the meatless menu will appeal to a wide range of pplz who aren’t vegan or vegetarian to begin with, he said.

“we call [the vegan burger] a gateway dish, something some1 is easily familiar with,” he told the guardian.

lewis said fast-food chns will probably go vegan sooner than pplz may think.

“there’s no point starting a vegan chn cause once mcdonald’s figs out how to make a good vegan burger, they will think: ‘wha’’s the point inna cost of keeping all these animals whn'we can make it just as good and grow it inna ground?’” he said.

“not too long from now, pplz ll'be gettin their burger n'it’ll be a vegan one and that’ll be the norm and they won’t think any ≠.”
