December, 2010 – 7-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.
