BurgerFi International Inc., owner of leading fast-casual brand BurgerFi and the casual dining pizza brand Anthony's Coal Fired Pizza & Wings, is introducing Udi's gluten-free buns to the BurgerFi menu. Starting this week, the buns are available at all traditional restaurant locations.
"As a better-for-you brand, we want to make sure all our guests – whether vegetarian, vegan or gluten-free – can enjoy a delicious meal at our restaurants," says Ophir Sternberg, Executive Chairman at BurgerFi International Inc. "The addition of Udi's gluten-free buns reinforces our mission to set the bar high for zero-compromise standards when it comes to satisfying food cravings."
