Simple Ingredients, Great Food

Simple Ingredients, Great Food

We’ve been working toward whole, real food for years and now restaurants are doing the same. The food industry is feeling pressure to produce products that positively impact our communities and do not contain ingredients with unrecognizable names.

We are striving to eliminate the following from our menus:

  • Artificial colors, flavors, sweeteners & additives
  • Preservatives
  • Meat from animals treated with non-therapeutic antibiotics
