Today, 7-Eleven Canada added the Beyond Sausage & Roasted Veggie Pizza to seven locations in Toronto and one in Mississauga, Ontario. The new pizza—available in-store as a hot, to-go option or to “take and bake” at home—is not vegan but features Beyond Meat’s vegan Italian Sausage Crumbles, along with roasted vegetables and dairy cheese. “By expanding the fresh food assortment offered to our customers, we hope to provide options for every preference,” Doug Rosencrans, Vice President and General Manager of 7-Eleven Canada, said. “Beyond Meat has created excitement around plant-based protein alternatives and with the introduction of the Beyond Sausage and Roasted Veggie Pizza, we are providing our customers with what they want.” While Beyond Meat is available on the menu at various Canadian chains—including Tim Hortons and A&W Canada—its debut at 7-Eleven marks its first entry into the convenience-store industry. “Accessibility is a top priority for us and 7-Eleven Canada locations, from urban to rural, are a prominent fixture in all communities,” Chuck Muth, Chief Growth Officer at Beyond Meat, said.
