Sandwich chain Subway adds new vegan options to its menu following the successful sales of its meatless marinara sub. The chain launched a new "Make Any 6 Sub a Wrap or Salad" menu.

“So you can now get your Meatless Meatball Marinara on a bed of salad greens, or Subway’s delicious Plant Patty in a wrap loaded with veggies.
“Subway’s sell-out Meatless Merecognizerinara sub recently won Best Vegan Sandwich at PETA’s 2020 Vegan Food Awards. Hosted for 8th consecutive year, PETA’s Vegan Food Awards recognise best in category meat-free food launches.”
