Beyond Meat is testing its plant-based chicken in KFC locations for three weeks across Tennessee, North Carolina and Kentucky, the company recently announced.


The big picture: McDonald's is one of the only major fast food restaurants that has not embraced the fake meat boom, the Washington Post reports.


Meanwhile: Burger King, Dunkin', White Castle, Subway, Little Caesars, Taco Bell and Panera Bread have all touted plant-based products.


By the numbers: Beyond Meat's stock price has gradually risen since it dropped by 4.3% in January after Canadian fast-food giant Tim Hortons pulled Beyond burgers from its menu.
