Subway to debut meatless meatball sub sandwich

Subway to debut meatless meatball sub sandwich

Inspired by Subway's classic meatball sub and made in collaboration with Beyond Meat, the sandwich is topped with marinara sauce and parmesan cheese, so it's totally vegetarian.

Citing NPD data showing that 70% of meat-eaters substitute for a non-meat protein once a week, Subway boasted that the Beyond Meat deal would give its customers 2 billion potential sandwich options. There are 24 grams of protein in each six-inch Beyond Meatball Marinara sandwich. The limited-time sandwich will be available in 685 Subway locations across the USA and Canada, and consists of vegan Beyond Meatballs created specially for Subway, along with marinara sauce, Provolone cheese, and parmesan cheese on toasted bread. The "meatballs" won't have a trace of meat in them, but will still be packed with protein, according to Subway's press release.

Subway's Beyond Meatball Marinara can be made vegan. In the last month, the sandwich chain has launched Halo Top milkshakes and rolled out King's Hawaiian bread at Subway locations. "We look forward to a long-term partnership with Subway", Beyond Meat CEO Ethan Brown said in a statement.
