The company’s revenue has soared following partnerships with major fast food brands KFC, Dunkin’ and Subway.

Beyond Meat products are now stocked at an incredible 58,000 locations across the US.

Estimated revenues for 2019 have been raised from $265 million to $270 million off the back of the surprising rate of growth. 

Beyond Meat is also hoping for the new McDonald’s P.L.T sandwich featuring its burger patty to launch soon.

And chain Denny’s has also announced a partnership with the brand, with the Beyond Burger featuring in Los Angeles stored this year and being rolled out nationwide in 2020.

The company entered the stock market in May and was a raging success, with its valuation more than doubling on an incredible first day.

The California-based company’s shares started off at $25 each, and soared throughout the day finishing at $68.75 – valuing the company at nearly $3.8bn.

The surge was the biggest increase in valuation for any company on its debut listing since 2008.
