Eclipse Foods is teaming up with all Smashburger locations to bring delicious and dairy-free plant-based milkshakes to the menu.
Eclipse Foods is a leader in plant-based ‘dairy’ products and was co-founded in 2019 by Aylon Steinhart and Thomas Bowman, who wanted to create a more sustainable, healthy, and ethical food system. Since then, Eclipse has jumped into the plant-based market and wants to challenge competitors with its mission of fighting climate change, animal suffering, and the human health crisis.
Now, Eclipse Foods will offer milkshakes for purchase in all Smashburger locations nationwide. Flavors include Vanilla, Chocolate, Strawberry, Peanut Butter, Tangerine Dream, and Oreo. The dairy-free milkshakes will also be available for take-out, and delivery, on Smashburger’s mobile app, DoorDash, Postmates, Uber Eats, and GrubHub.
“We are so proud to partner with Smashburger to introduce the first ever plant-based shakes at a national fast-casual chain,” says Steinhart, Co-founder, and CEO of Eclipse. “This partnership marks an incredible milestone in advancing the plant-based movement and signals Smashburger’s® confidence in Eclipse as the plant-based dairy brand that mainstream consumers will crave. Our shakes perfectly mimic the delicious taste and texture of traditional dairy milkshakes, and require no flavor sacrifice from consumers. And now that the shakes are available nationwide, even more people will have access to exceptionally delicious plant-based options that are better for the planet, animals, and people. ”

This felt like a natural next step in Smashburger’s journey to offer more diverse and plant-based options for our guests, while still delivering the premium, top-quality menu items that Smash fans know and love. ”
