7-Eleven Makes a Move Toward the Vegan Market

0

7-11 logo7-Eleven has introduced some new vegan food items to eight stores in the New York area, as reported by the New York Daily News.

The vegan test run includes several menu options which certainly don’t shout traditional 7-Eleven, including artichoke spinach noodles, vegetable lo mein and two types of dumplings. All items of these items are free of meat, eggs, and dairy, and will retail for $6.

“There was demand in the New York and Philadelphia area, not only from our customers but from our employees and franchisees, some of whom are vegetarians,” Margaret Chabris, director of corporate communications told the news outlet.

If all goes well, wary vegan (and dairy-free) travelers, may soon be able to find some decent lunch options at other 7-Elevens throughout the country.

2011 7-Eleven Update

Vegan Pad Thai from 7-11September, 2011 – In December of last year, we reported that 7-Eleven launched a vegan pilot program in select New York stores. It looks like the test was a huge success as the mega-quick mart chain has rolled the program out to 100 stores in the Northeast! The new meals include:

  • Vegan Linguine Tikka Massala
  • Vegan Pad Thai Noodles
  • Vegan Asian Linguine
  • Vegan Spinach Noodles with Vegetable

Obviously, all of the meals are dairy-free, egg-free, and free of any animal products, but the best part is, they are also relatively wholesome. Venturing away from their processed food model, 7-Eleven has used clearly legible and relatively healthy ingredients in the new vegan selections. They look to be a fantastic on-the-go selection (versus, say, those hotdog that have been cooking on the rollers for three hours) for just about anyone, vegan or not. I hope that 7-Eleven will make these entrees available nationwide, but for now, you should be able to find them at all of the following locations:
