How will your restaurant benefit from offering a gluten-free menu?

  • Approximately 1 in 133 people have celiac disease. 3+ million require a totally gluten-free diet
  • 15 million est. gluten intolerant consumers.
  • 7 million wheat allergy consumers.
  • 8% to 10% of the US population lives by a gluten-free diet
  • Individuals requiring a gluten-free diet have expressed difficulty dining out due to the inability to find safe, gluten-free meals in restaurants.
  • 96% gluten-free consumers are brand loyal.
  • Individuals with celiac disease or other gluten intolerances enjoy dining with business associates, friends and family.  Because of this, individuals following a gluten-free diet are often asked to select the restaurant.

What Participating Restaurants Say About the Program:

"I am pleased to serve gluten-free selections, because the people who need them are so appreciative."

"With a little bit of care and slight modifications, cooking gluten-free is not so difficult!"

"I was skeptical at first, but having monitored the ordering of the gluten-free menu items, I find it has increased our business 8-10%."

"We started the process with two gluten-free entrees; now we have six gluten-free entrees, three appetizers, and two desserts.  Ours is a patron driven menu."

"I am VERY happy with the GFRAP program. I have someone ordering gluten free every night! I was really surprised at the number of new customers this program brought in. It is great not to have to figure out all the information in the middle of a busy night - which foods the customers can eat and which they cannot. I will soon change all of my menus, so that they all have gluten-free selections. We recently added gluten-free pasta and beer."

"The other day I went to talk to some of my customers – a group of ten.  They were from 200 miles away.  Gluten-free people like to travel!  They found us on the GFRAP website."
