"Eat Beyond is excited to enter the QSR space with this investment in Plant Power," said Patrick Morris, CEO of Eat Beyond.

"We're basically a cruelty-free, healthier, sustainable alternative to the traditional QSR model, and we are thrilled to be able to offer our guests a revolutionary new take on fast-food."Plant Power currently operates seven restaurants and a food truck in Southern California and recently announced three top level industry hires, a national distribution agreement and eight new locations slated to open over the next 14 months.
