"Summer is the perfect time to enjoy these fresh and tasty healthier topping options Canadians have been looking for," said Kathleen Bell, director of national marketing, SUBWAY® Restaurants of Canada.

"Not only is avocado a delicious option for summer, it offers a wide range of nutritional benefits," said SUBWAY® executive chef Chris Martone.
