Greenleaf Foods makes foodservice push with Lightlife Burger
Dave and Buster’s adds Lightlife Burger to menu in U.S., Canada
Dave and Buster’s entered into a new partnership to add the plant-based Greenleaf Lightlife Burger to its menu. Greenleaf Foods’ announcement makes the Dallas, Texas-based entertainment and dining venue chain’s switch from Impossible Burger to Lightlife a done deal. Dave and Buster’s VP of Culinary and Beverage Art Carl also confirmed the nationwide and Canadian transition in a statement.
He said. “We strive to be our customers’ first choice for fun, crave-able food, and Lightlife helps us do just that by giving our guests an innovative and incredibly delicious plant-based burger.”
Lightlife Burgers contain 20 grams of pea protein, 2.5 grams of saturated fat and no cholesterol. Additionally, Dave and Buster’s Lightlife Burgers come with a choice of toppings, including lettuce, tomato, onions, pickles, and garlic aioli.
Furthermore, Greenleaf Foods Lightlife Burger sells at over 12,000 retail stores nationwide. Also, the supplier sells a new plant-based line of foods—Italian Sausage and Bratwurst Sausage—at major food retailers. These include Acme, Albertsons, Fresh Thyme, Haggen, Jewel, Kroger, Pavilions, Public, Safeway, Sprouts, Target, Vons, and Wegmans. The new sausage line was added earlier this year to Greenleaf Foods’ plant-based, meat-alternative products.
The Chicago-based supplier is eyeing major foodservice expansion, it appears. And with the roll-out of the plant-based product at all Dave and Buster’s locations, Greenleaf Lightlife Burger becomes more prominent. In September, Greenleaf Foods also partnered with the NFL Chicago Bears to bring Lightlife Burger to home games at Chicago’s Soldier Stadium.
Dave and Buster’s Entertainment owns and operates 130 venues in North America. These entertainment and dining complexes market the brand with the slogan “Eat Drink Play and Watch” in one place.
