Ike’s Love & Sandwiches practically invented great vegetarian sandwiches. When Ike’s first opened in 2007, there were 10 vegetarian and 2 vegan sandwiches on the menu. That’s 12 out of the original 36 sandwiches made for people who want to eat vegetarian or vegan. Ike didn’t create those sandwiches to cater to a plant-based trend, he put them on the menu because he cared about having great sandwiches for his vegetarian and vegan friends…and they were frickin’ delicious sandwiches.  

Today, Ike’s celebrates a plant-based lifestyle year-round. Almost every one of Ike’s 800+ fantastic creations can be made vegetarian, which means Ike’s has more vegetarian and vegan sandwiches than meat ones, and more veggie and vegan options that any actual plant-based restaurant. Even if you’re just a little veg-curious, Ike’s has options for you, including 5 different plant-based proteins: vegetarian bacon, vegan chicken, vegan turkey, vegan meatballs, and vegan steak. 

Founder, Ike Shehadeh boasts, “We have more and better vegan and veggie options than anyone! If you want a boring sandwich with sad after-thought ‘plant-based’ options created by marketing departments, go to one of those sandwich shops that use yoga mats for bread. If you want an amazing sandwich that’s also vegetarian, come to Ike’s!” 

Renae Scott, Chief Marketing Officer for Ike’s Love & Sandwiches welcomes eaters of all persuasions, “Ike’s has crafted unique flavors for vegans and vegetarians since our beginning – 15 years ago, which is why we offer more plant-based combinations and options than any other restaurant. We welcome all Ike fans who want to eat vegan and vegetarian with your meat-eating friends – you both get mouthwatering options.” 

 Ike’s Love & Sandwiches is celebrating October’s National Vegetarian Month with special deals on some of its most popular plant-based sandwiches.
