Subway looking to add 3 new vegan sandwiches

Posted on: June 19th, 2012 by

Eric L. Bach & AssociatesSubway has decided to expand its menu to attract more vegan customers.  The company says it will begin a limited test of three new vegan sandwiches in 8 locations throughout Maryland, Washington D.C., and Virginia, according Kevin Kane, Subway’s public relations manager.  They are set to be released this week.

The three new options: Malibu Greek, Sweet Riblet, and Italian Black Bean – all are available meat free, and dairy free.

“We’re testing to see what what the reception is, if people like them,” says Kane who added that there are no plans at this time to add the vegan options on menus nationwide.  Kane says the idea for the sandwiches was presented to Subway by one franchise owner in the mid-Atlantic region.  The sandwiches are available on the vegan breads available at the restaurant: Roasted Garlic, Sourdough, Light Wheat English Muffin, Hearty Italian, and Hearty Italian White.  The cost is $7.00 for the foot-long and $4.50 for the 6-inch.

Animal advocacy organization, Compassion Over Killing, says it convinced Subway to sell the new options after it launched its “We Love Subway” campaign, after the group lobbied the fast food chain to introduce the “Totally Vegged” vegan patty in Canada.
