These pillars permit us to serve the highest quality burger in terms of flavor, health insurance and sustainability,” said Jeff Chandler, CEO of Hopdoddy Burger Bar. “Impossible Burger exceeds our highest standards and makes a great accessory for our menu and our brand — and we’re excited to share it with Texas’ Hopdoddy fanatics.”
Hopdoddy: Hops, cows…as well as the Impossible.
Highly respected for the pioneering role in accelerating the “better burger” trend, Hopdoddy was named one of the “Best Burgers in America” by both Food & Wine and Rachael Ray Every Day. Hopdoddy was made to express an ideal union of burgers and beer: handcrafted beer (Hop) and (Doddy), the nickname provided to native angus cow in Aberdeen, Scotland.
Founded in 2010 by Guy Villavaso, Larry Foles, Chuck Smith and Larry Perdido, Hopdoddy stands out for the “completely from scratch” ethos and full bar. All burgers at Hopdoddy are created with antibiotic- and hormone-free beef. Every burger is ground in-house daily, and buns are baked on location. Hopdoddy uses Kennebec potatoes, hand-cut and blanched every morning, and sauces and dressings are made of scratch. Currently, Hopdoddy has 18 locations across Texas, Arizona, California and Colorado.
“We want to grow along with Hopdoddy,” said Impossible Foods CEO and Founder Patrick O. Brown, M.D., Ph.D. “And it’s fitting to start out our relationship right here, in Texas, that has the most discerning burger experts on the planet. We encourage all of them to try The Impossible.”
Big Taste, Small Footprint
The Impossible Burger is definitely the world’s only burger seems, handles, smells, cooks and tastes like ground beef from cows — but is created entirely from plants, using a smaller environmental footprint than meat from animals.
Made entirely from plants, the Impossible Burger uses about 75% less water, generates about 87% fewer greenhouse gases and needs around 95% less land than conventional ground beef from cows. It’s nejjlz without hormones, antibiotics, cholesterol or artificial flavors.
In development since 2011, the Impossible Burger debuted in July 2016 in New York City at Chef David Chang’s restaurant Momofuku Nishi. It’s currently served in nearly two dozen additional restaurants in New York, California and Nevada. For more information about Impossible Foods, check out www.impossiblefoods.com.
