2 Mins Read
Yo Egg, the creators of the world’s first plant-based sunny-side-up and poached eggs, has announced a partnership with U.S.-based vegan fast-casual chain, Veggie Grill.
Yo Egg and Veggie Grill are launching three new limited-time offerings (LTOs). The award-winning plant-based eggs from Yo Egg will be featured in Yo Poached Egg Avocado Toast, Huevos Rancheros Bowl with Yo sunny-side-up egg, and Yo Egg Kimchi Burger.
“This collaboration with Veggie Grill exemplifies our mission to reinvent eggs and how foodservice operators use eggs in their menus,” Eran Groner, CEO of Yo Egg, said in a statement. “We can’t wait for consumers to taste these innovative dishes.”
Veggie Grill’s vegan spin on the trendy avocado toast, the Yo Poached Egg Avo Toast, combines toasted sourdough, sliced avocado, chopped tomatoes, cucumbers, and a Yo Egg poached egg encrusted in everything bagel seasoning.
The Huevos Rancheros Bowl, a spicy vegan take on a classic, offers a tantalizing blend of brown rice, ranchero beans, fried corn tortillas, pepper jack cheese, Yo Egg’s sunny-side-up egg, salsa roja and verde, and chopped cilantro.
The Yo Egg Kimchi Burger features a seasoned Beyond Burger topped with sesame aioli, shredded lettuce, pickled cucumbers, kimchi, all nestled in a sesame seed bun and crowned with a sunny-side-up Yo Egg.
While Yo Egg is not Veggie Grill’s first vegan egg alternative — the first was San Francisco’s Just Egg — it is the first to get this many iterations.
“We’re thrilled to be partnering with Yo Egg,” T.K. Pillan, Founder and CEO of Veggie Grill, said about the collaboration. “Yo Egg’s sunny-side-up and poached eggs create uniquely compelling additions to our 100% plant-based menu and further our goal to bring guests the best of the plant-based world.”
Yo Egg’s plant-based egg products have garnered significant recognition, earning the company two of the National Restaurant Association’s 2023 Food and Beverage Awards for the “world’s first and only” plant-based poached egg and sunny-side-up egg.
