The restaurant will also be adding the plant-based protein burger, Beyond Burger, to the menu from 22 November 2019. Beyond Burger will be supplied by Infinite Foods – distributors and manufacturers of plant-based food brands.

“As a family restaurant, the most important value for us to embody is inclusivity, which in our opinion is synonymous with the meaning of family,” says Kevin Robertson, chief operating officer, Spur Steak Ranches.

“No one family is the same. We have included options in our menu that make it possible for a group of diverse people to get together and enjoy a variety of meal options. It is therefore important that the addition of the plant-based options is well-thought out and has mouth-watering items to excite everyone,” adds Robertson.

The Nachos Mexicana and the large cheesy quesadillas will stay as starter options for everyone, including vegetarians, who also have the option of a Greek Salad and or fresh hot vegetables.

“The introduction of the plant-based menu is one of the progressive steps we are taking towards a┬ámore sustainable brand and business, while giving our customers greater choice, “explains Robertson.

“While our plant-based meals are prepared in a kitchen that handles animal products, we urge our customers to walk the journey with us as we evolve as a brand. We value the feedback of each and every single patron.”
