"Yes, we are struggling to keep up with the demand for the Impossible Burger. The problem is not unique to any single region or chain; we do not prioritize anyone so that outbreaks can basically affect some of the 9,000 restaurants where Impossible Burger is on the menu, a company spokeswoman tells Yahoo Finance.

We are increasing the number of employees at the factory in Oakland, California, now running 24-7 (two 12-hour shifts per day) and employment utes about 130 full-time people (including 25 who completed their training only last week). We work aggressively with several new hires to work in Oakland with a variety of features.
Also last month we hired a new top manager with extensive production experience. Sheetal Shah has spent more than a decade upgrading technology companies to achieve breakthrough growth – and we're sure he'll do the same for Impossible Foods.
Also last month, announced $ 300 million in new investment  from both blue-chip global investors and high profile individuals. We will dedicate significant funding to increasing production quickly and to our long-term growth strategy.
To achieve continued growth in growth, the company will add more production capacity and actively work with strategies to do so. We do not provide further details on our production expansion at this time. Stay tuned.
The shortcomings make sense in light of the Impossible Foods growth rate. Impossible food tells Yahoo Finance it has seen 50% sales growth since the launch of its new 2.0 burger in January. Sales in Asia have increased by four times over the last three months alone.
A spokeswoman from Beyond Meat did not return Yahoo Finance's request to comment on their own supply shortages.
