Description: If you wanted one of those Beyond Meat sandwiches from Tim Horton’s, quit looking, unless you live in Ontario or BC. The coffee chain said the product had been offered as a market test. Significant uptake in Ontario and BC has prompted management to keep Beyond Meat in those two jurisdictions while pulling it elsewhere.

Discussion points:

1) Have you tried the Beyond Meat products at a restaurant or at home?

2) How often do you eat out versus making meals at home? Does it differ during your school year?

3) In chapter twelve, page 156, of Wiley’s Managerial Accounting: Tools for Business Decision-Making , we learn about standard costing. How would you go about developing standard costs for the Beyond Meat sandwiches at a fast food company?
