Top-9 allergens are included in menu names and/or descriptions whenever possible.

Avoiding Gluten pantry items include ingredients that are naturally without gluten-containing ingredients or alternatives to traditional gluten-containing options. In addition, a dedicated toaster is available for items that are made without gluten-containing ingredients.
