Back in November 2014, we reported that Burger King was expanding to India and introducing beef-less burgers. Now, the Indian fare might be spreading to other countries.
According to Economic Times India, the meatless options are expected to be well-received by countries with a larger vegetarian market, such as the United States and United Kingdom. Raj Varman, CEO of Burger King India, told the Press Trust of India that this is will fare well in those countries. “Looking at the response here, the global management is evaluating introducing some of these options going forward to other vegetarian-friendly markets like the U.K.,” Varman said.
Burger King India offers vegetarian Whoppers and burgers made with a crispy patty filled with potatoes, peas, and other vegetables; a paneer melt; a spicy bean burger made with kidney beans; and veggie strips that look like mozzarella sticks but are filled with corn, peas, and carrots.
There’s no word yet on when the Burger King India menu might debut overseas, but for now, it is set to expand to southern parts of India.
