Staring in September, Subway—the world’s largest fast-food chain—will begin testing a sub sandwich made with Beyond Meat for a limited time at 685 select locations across the United States and Canada. Locations in Jackson, MS; South Bend, IN; Fresno, CA; Louisville, KY; Harrisburg, PA; and Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada will be part of the limited-time test. The Beyond Meatball Marinara sandwich features vegan meatballs specially developed for Subway and can be ordered vegan by omitting cheese and on Italian or 9-Grain Wheat bread. “We’re excited to partner with Subway and are grateful that the menu team through to senior management has entrusted us as their innovation partner to deliver delicious plant-based proteins to their guests,” Beyond Meat CEO Ethan Brown said. “We look forward to a long-term partnership with Subway as we together serve and delight existing and new fans of this iconic chain.” While Subway will test the new Beyond Meatball Marinara sandwich in select locations, the chain is already considering a nationwide rollout. “We anticipate guests across Canada and the US will be encouraging us to expand, so we hope to make a decision soon,” Subway said in a statement.
