Did you know that one-third of Americans now consider themselves Flexitarians, which means they do not adhere to one specific eating style? And experts are predicting plant-based protein could represent one-third of overall protein by 2054.

Over the past year, McAlister’s Deli has enhanced its menu with new flavor profiles and options and for the first time will be running a test with a plant-based protein sandwich in Chicago and Knoxville, Tennesee. With 14 locations (seven in each market) participating both in Chicago and Knoxville, locals can try out the new Chimichurri Sandwich for a limited time from February13-March 26.

About the Chimichurri Sandwich
The delicious new menu item features chimichurri marinated protein, balsamic onions, provolone cheese, chimichurri aioli, tomato, and spring mix on toasted ciabatta. In addition to the plant-based protein option, customers can also order with chicken or roast beef. Pricing is $8.99.
