Subway Introduces Falafel in the Nation’s Capital

Last year, we shared the news about Subway’s vegan test menu in eight DC-area locations that was so popular, stores ran out of the vegan patties within a few short weeks. Several of the restaurant managers told us the vegan menu was tremendously successful, and they’ve been eager to satisfy customer demand by putting heartier and healthier plant-based options back on the menu.

One year after the vegan test menu ended, we, along with several Subway stores – and thousands of customers – have been patiently waiting for the company to take the next plant-based step.

Animal Outlook has a new campaign update: we’re excited to let you know that plant-based options are starting to reappear at Subway.

With large window signs calling out to “Veggie Lovers,” dozens of Subway stores in and around the nation’s capital have introduced a falafel sandwich. Available for a limited time, the falafel itself is vegan,* although it’s advertised with a cucumber sauce that contains dairy. No worries though — as with other sandwiches at Subway, your falafel sub can easily be customized.

While falafel is a new menu option in the DC-area, Subway stores throughout Chicago served it for nearly two years (it was just removed from most menus this fall), and it’s also available in select Canadian locations. With enough customer interest, we hope this option will expand to other markets across North America.
