Chuck E. Cheese’s is jumping on the gluten-free bandwagon, like many other popular chain restaurants, and is set to offer a select number of gluten-free products to its customers in Minnesota.
The company announced this week that it will be testing out two products – gluten-free pizza and gluten-free cupcakes – in its Minnesota locations in hopes of providing better menu choices for customers with all dietary restrictions.
“We’ve received an overwhelming response from families requesting that we add gluten-free products to our menu items for their kids who love to visit us but can’t enjoy a Chuck E. classic pizza because of special diet needs,” said Joe Elliot, Chuck E. Cheese’s vice-president of research and development.
The new products will come in pre-sealed packaging and will remained sealed until an adult at the table chooses to open them.
The products are part of a test at the moment but if they see the success they anticipate from the experiment, the company says the gluten-free products will be rolled out nationwide.
Other popular chain restaurants offering gluten-free menu items include Chili’s, The Old Spaghetti Factory, Outback Steakhouse and more.
