Select Subway Cafés Unveil New Vegan Sandwiches

In response to demand from veg customers, Subway has added new meat-free options to select stores.

Last year, animal-rights organization Compassion Over Killing urged fast-food chain Subway to step up its vegan-option game, and now several franchises have begun to serve new all-vegan sandwiches. COK and The Humane League announced yesterday that eight Subway Café locations in Maryland, Virginia, and Washington, DC, have added three plant-based options to their menus: the Sweet Riblet, Malibu Greek, and Italian Black Bean Sandwiches. COK is encouraging vegetarian and vegan Subway fans to express their appreciation for the new items by contacting the chain through welovesubway.com or calling the company directly. In November 2011, Subway franchises in Canada began serving an all-vegan meat-substitute patty to meet customer demand.
