You might assume that any restaurant selling subs, like Jimmy Johns, will have plenty of vegan options, but that’s not always the case. Bread can contain hidden animal ingredients, like whey and eggs, so you can’t always rely on a veggie sub. We had a hard time figuring out what vegan options Jimmy Johns has, so we decided to email them for some clarification. Take a look at their response below.
Thanks for eating at Jimmy John’s, we love our customers! I am writing you back in response to your earlier e-mail.
