DENVER, CO and BATTLE CREEK, MI —March 29, 2022—Nextbite, a leader in virtual restaurants and technology, today announced its first CPG (consumer products group) partnership with MorningStar Farms® Incogmeato®. MorningStar Farms® Incogmeato® is a division of Kellogg that produces vegan and vegetarian food. This partnership expands Nextbite’s brand Miss Mazy’s Amazin’ Chicken with plant-based menu offerings, featuring the new MorningStar Farms® Incogmeato® Chik’n Tenders that are packed with craveable plant-based protein and taste just like chicken.
The new menu items, the Incogmeato® Cheeky Chik’n sandwich and Incogmeato® Fried Chik’n Tenders, meet consumers’ growing demand for plant-based menu choices. The plant-based sandwiches and tenders are available for a limited time through May 31, 2022, from select Miss Mazy’s Amazin’ Chicken locations in San Francisco, Las Vegas, and the NYC metro area. Customers can order from these locations via Uber Eats, DoorDash and Grubhub and at MissMazys.com.
The Miss Mazy’s MorningStar Farms® Incogmeato® Chik’n Tenders are mouth-wateringly delicious, with the just-like-meat taste of thick, juicy and crispy homestyle chicken served with classic sauces. Delivering key attributes that consumers increasingly demand, the 100% plant protein MorningStar Farms® Incogmeato® Chik’n Tenders are vegan, made with non-GMO soy, no preservatives, and all natural flavors.
“We are proud to partner with Nextbite and Miss Mazy’s Amazin’ Chicken for our first entry into the virtual restaurant industry to make Chik’n Tenders easily available via delivery,” said Stefanie Miller, President, Away from Home, Kellogg Company. “Morningstar Farms® Incogmeato® Chik’n Tenders use finely-honed plant-based tear technology to create fibers that tear-apart and mimic the texture of real chicken.
