Subway has expanded its menu to attract more vegan
customers. The company says it will begin a limited test of
three new vegan sandwiches at locations in Maryland, Washington
D.C. and Virginia, according Kevin Kane, Subway's public relations
Subway will have three new options--Malibu Greek, Sweet Riblet,
and Italian Black Bean--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.
