Subway looking to hummus, thinner meat to keep with trends

Posted Wednesday, May 7th 2014 @ 12pm

NEW YORK (AP) - Subway is testing hummus and thinner slices of deli meats that look more appealing as it looks to keep pace with changing eating trends.       

Tony Pace, Subway's Chief Marketing Officer, said in interview on Tuesday that the chain began testing hummus as a topping in early April.                

Pace noted that many customers already order vegetarian sandwiches and that the hummus would give people looking for meatless options another choice.         

Co-founder Fred Deluca says the chain is also testing thinner slices of deli meats. Deluca said the thinner slices improve the “bite” of the meat and make it look like there's more meat.
