Einstein Bros. Bagels, the largest bagel retail company in America with more than 700 locations, has added new plant-based items to its offerings, including vegan cream cheese toppings from Daiya cheese.
Einstein Bros. Bagels already offers a wide vegan line, with 70% of its menu dairy-free, including the Plain Bagel and the Everything Bagel, a couple of its most popular products.
Now the chain has introduced its first vegan-friendly Shmear as a nationwide test. The Vegan Schmear has been produced in partnership with Daiya and is available through February at selected locations. Expanding its drinks menu, Einstein Bros. Bagels is now also offering a new Caribou Coffee Almond Milk Latte in both hot or iced versions.
“Our guests have requested dairy-free options and we heard them loud and clear. We’re thrilled to offer dairy-free alternatives, among our other menu offerings,” Jose Alberto Dueñas, CEO of Einstein Bros. Bagels commented. “We are committed to creating new ways to cater to our guests’ dietary needs and chosen lifestyles.”
