While 4food’s menu has always offered a wide variety of gluten-free items we knew that there was more work to be done in providing the safest environment possible in better serving the gluten-free community. We have taken it a big stride further and for the past several months our team members have undergone training to achieve our Gluten Free Restaurant Certification. This certification establishes 4food as a very safe dining experience for the gluten-free community. In order to achieve this designation, 4food has partnered with Celiebo and its founder Tinsley Meloy. Celiebo works to raise awareness and promote diagnosis of celiac disease, a condition that affects some 3 million Americans, only 3% of which are properly diagnosed. Beyond the disease itself, Celiebo works to serve the gluten intolerant and gluten sensitive communities that number approximately 25 million in the United States alone. Tinsley and her educational team have worked hand in hand with the 4food staff to inform and train us in how to safely serve a gluten-free guest in every phase of the dining and ordering process, as well as how to implement tools and processes to create an environment free of cross contamination while maintaining a diverse and customizable array of menu items. We look forward to de-junking a growing community that is certainly in need of access to such responsible fast food.
ON THE CART/CHARTBEAT: BIRD OF A GOLDEN FEATHER AND ONE OF MANY RIGHT COMBINATIONS
This week’s Buildboard Chart starts with a four way tie at #10 as we welcome back ANGUSSHILLINGTON’S namesake ANGUS, alongside ANGELA1126’S namesake redux Angela’s Veggie 2, as well the return of LARRYSMILLER’S VoxBurger, and the introduction of KIKAZ’S The Wrong Combination which is indeed a “sweet and salty” and tasty combo of Brioche Bun-Wild Salmon Patty-Avocado & Chili Mango Scoop-Pancetta Bacon Slice-Manchego Cheese-Lettuce-Pickle-Tomato-Sweet Chili Condiment. Both dropping two spots and yet tied again this week at #7 are ANGELA1126’S Jake’s Mac & Cheese pancetta burger alongside MSHEPPARD’S “don’t think they got the message” The Mayan Burger. ALEXC’S recently steadfast Midtown Cheddar Bacon is sharing the #3 spot with AHARRIS’S always steadfast and platinum CaliBurger. GFARNOLI’S “an improved classic with a healthy twist” New American Cheddar Burger holds solid at #2 while JFAVUZZA’S does similarly in claiming this week’s top spot with his “even better” and very golden Better Turkey Burger.
