Our employees are trained to properly prepare gluten-free menu options. For instance, they use fresh aprons, clean hands (as always), allergen kits, separate seasoning containers andspecially sanitized work areas. Toasting zones are designated for individually wrapped, pre-cut specialty buns that are kept at a distance from the other buns and burgers.
May is Celiac Disease Awareness Month, which we marked by partnering with the Canadian Celiac Association for May Mondays, a fundraiser for the Right to Safe Food cause. In May, customers had the option of bringing in a coupon to our restaurants on Mondays to indicate a donation of 25% of the bill. Everyone has the right to healthy, safe food, and Turtle Jack’s strives to provide flavourful, gourmet options for those who must eat gluten-free. At Turtle Jack’s, we believe that gluten-free shouldn’t be available only in May, but all year round. We’re committed to providing these options with a specialized, tasty and diverse gluten-free menu for our guests who request them.
