Dunkin' Donuts is selling their Beyond Meat egg, cheese, and lab sausage sandwich nationwide.

They will sell lab meat at more locations than anyone else. It is their second-most-popular menu item, behind the bacon sandwich. People are buying it all day. However, Tim Horton's stopped selling their lab meat: Dunkin' is launching its Beyond Meat sandwich nationally

Some say that lab meat isn't any better for the environment:
“So much money is poured into meat labs, but even with that amount of money, the product still has a carbon footprint that is roughly five times the carbon footprint of chicken and ten times higher than plant-based processed meats,” [Marco Springmann, a senior environmental researcher at the University of Oxford] said.
As the lab-grown meat industry grows, scientists debate if it could exacerbate climate change

“Since mid-July, we have seen BK gain traffic nationally relative to McDonald’s with the gains accelerating as we approached the nationwide launch of the Impossible Whopper,” the Barclays team wrote. Our research suggests that, “following the national launch of the Impossible Whopper, BK stores have seen an ~2 percentage point traffic lift nationally, relative to McDonald’s.”
The Impossible Whopper is driving steady traffic to Burger King, data shows
