“More and more of our Kiwi customers have been asking for plant-based options, so we have listened and responded to that demand,” explains Tyler Stead, General Manager of Texas Chicken New Zealand. “The Vegetarian Texan is perfect if you are trying to cut down on the amount of meat you eat but still want a burger that packs a big flavour punch.”
“Texas Chicken is well known for playing with fresh, bold flavours and our first ever plant-based burger follows that same tradition,” he adds. “We’re delighted with how the Vegetarian Texan has turned out and can’t wait to share it with everyone this week.”
This year, Texas Chicken is celebrating six years since the brand landed in New Zealand from the USA and started providing Kiwis with its world-famous hand battered, 12-hour marinated, freshly cooked chicken and sides. Texas Chicken prides itself on serving chicken that is bigger, crispier, juicer and more flavoursome than other brands.
