Our Priorities and Practices
- We place emphasis on packaging, making sure our take-out containers are all made of recycled materials
- We use Xpressnap Dispensers, which are made of 100% recycled paper and a dispenser that encourages customers to take fewer napkins
- We’ve also eliminated plastic straws and stirrers
- We switched to cage-free shell eggs and cage-free liquid eggs, which helps reduce antibiotic use in farm animals
- We purchase from suppliers who practice safe labor laws and never exploit or harm their employees by providing a safe work environment and do not employ slave labor
- We have a 100% ban on trans-fat
