Abbot’s Butcher vegan chorizo is now available at all Freebirds World Burrito’s 70+ locations, according to the company.

The chorizo is available as an option for any of the customizable menu items at the burrito business, including the trademark Freebirds monster and double monster burritos. To satisfy gluten-free clients, the business is also introducing Siete grain-free tortillas.

The Austin, TX-based Freebirds are launching their second plant-based meat product. Beyond Meat’s Feisty Crumbles were included as a protein alternative in the company’s burritos, tacos, nachos, bowls, and salads in 2018.

Without soy, gluten, or artificial chemicals, Abbot’s Butcher chorizo is created with pea protein, smoky paprika, and spices. Abbot’s Butcher products were the first plant-based meats to be certified by the Whole30 program, which acknowledges healthy, clean-label food items.

The company concluded a Series A fundraising round in October, with stars Owen Wilson and Woody Harrelson participating, to help drive the brand’s distribution and foodservice expansion.

Chorizo For All

Freebirds hopes to offer an enticing new protein for all customers, similar to Chipotle Mexican Grill, which released vegan chorizo last year as well.

“Meat lovers, vegans, vegetarians, gluten-free diets and everyone in between can all enjoy a great meal together at Freebirds thanks to our endless possible combinations of ingredients and flavors… Abbot’s plant-based chorizo is so good and perfectly seasoned, some people won’t even know that it is entirely plant-based,” said Alex Eagle, CEO of Freebirds World Burrito. 

“We couldn’t be more thrilled to partner with Freebirds to offer a delicious, plant-based “Chorizo” that pairs perfectly with their menu items. An increasing number of people are looking for exciting ways to incorporate more plant-based meals into their diet. By working with Freebirds, we’ll be able to help them to do just that,” stated Kerry Song, founder and CEO of Abbot’s Butcher.
