This would be ok news if meat products sold/consumed at these chains actually decreased, but it'll probably give them a larger vegan and vegetarian customer base that they haven't had previously.

If these junk food shacks start to sell genuinely vegan menus then I'll permit myself to be cautiously optimistic. Currently so many people have zero clue what veganism even is, so I find it encouraging to see veganism becoming mainstream. I'm interested to see how these burgers will be advertised. They can't really call them cruelty-free because that would be admitting that the rest of their menu is cruel. If they fry them on the same grills as the carcasses, like the Rebel Whopper, then it's a non-starter. Once the vegan population reaches 5%, we'll tear all the slaughterhouses down.
