Get the Gluten Out

As more restaurants offer gluten-free options, the competition for these customers is getting stiffer. Here’s how to earn their business:

Create a foolproof system. Enroll in a reputable gluten-free certification program to ensure strict standards in your kitchen. When it comes to cross-contamination, you can never let your guard down.

Show that you care. Besides gluten-free pizza, create a gluten-free dish for each part of your menu, from appetizers to desserts.

Communication is key. Make sure your waitstaff, phone staff and kitchen crew understand the needs of the gluten-free community. Train them to answer questions about your kitchen and how you prevent cross-contamination to provide a safe product.

Reach out to the community. Work with gluten-free bloggers and local celiac support groups. Invite them to a special gluten-free tasting or host a celiac awareness night.
