Do you manage or own a restaurant and need help adopting a gluten-free menu or GF options? Are you celiac or gluten-intolerant and looking for local GF eateries or restaurants along the way on your next road trip?
Well, do I have a website for you to check out!
The Gluten Intolerant Group of North America (GIGNA) has created the groundbreaking and convenient Gluten-Free Restaurant Awareness Program (GFRAP).
How does it work? Over 1600 independent and chain restaurants participate in the program, each one receiving “extensive” publicity and resources for creating GF menus and GF menu options. Gluten-free diners benefit, too! Just go to glutenfreerestaurants.org, click on “Find a Restaurant,” type in your zip code, and voilà! They can also find out special information about the restaurants they choose and even give feedback after their dining experience is over.
To sign up, owners and managers can fill out an online application available at GFRAP’s website, glutenfreerestaurants.org. For more information or a quote, call 253-218-2957 or e-mail GFRAP@gluten.net for more information. Prices start at $100 with the Basic Level certification—the first of three levels of accreditation.
With 8 to 10% of the U.S. population currently on a gluten-free diet, and 96% of them brand-loyal, gluten-free restaurants are sure to attract increased patronage. What’s more, we have GF and non-GF friends, too!
I’ll definitely be visiting glutenfreerestaurants.org for our next road trip. Thanks, GIGNA, for this wonderful program!
