YOU DESERVE TO KNOW
WHAT'S IN YOUR FOOD.™
THE WEI FORWARD™
We believe that for food to deliver world-class flavor, it should begin with simple, fresh ingredients that are minimally processed and free of artificial color and preservatives. We believe in ingredient transparency, which is why we are proudly listing our ingredients so that consumers will be able to make informed choices without being misled by crafty marketing. At Pei Wei, we take pride in preparing our fresh whole food in-house and make our dishes to order. And with The Wei Forward, we make it easy for you to eat the food you love, with less of the stuff you don’t.
FRESH, WHOLE FOOD
CLEAN & TRANSPARENT
We want to lead positive change in the restaurant industry. That’s why we’re opening up and letting you in. We believe it’s your right to know what’s in your food and we won’t make misleading claims to cover up when we have to make improvements. Our vision is clear: 100% of our menu will be clean by the end of 2020, and we’re committed to following through.
MADE FOR YOU
Our trained chefs cook our fresh, whole ingredients to order, and that’s why we can spend the time and take care to accommodate your preferences, whether it be flavor related or a dietary need. Want some heat? We can turn it up. All veg? We’ve got it. Gluten free? Yup. One of our commitments is to have continued expansion, and with that comes accommodation of your dietary needs and preferences.
Excludes airport, campus, and international locations.
A Call For Transparency
Our beliefs center around the need to demand transparency and allow consumers to make informed dining decisions. Allowing guests to know the ingredients in their food not only calls attention to its nutritional value, it also makes it easier for dietary preferences to be carefully accommodated.
We hope to affect more than your health with this information about your food, we want to empower you with a healthy peace of mind about it.

FDA PETITION AND CHANGE.ORG–GET BEHIND THE CAUSE
Under current FDA regulations, restaurants don’t have to tell you if your meal has preservatives, artificial coloring or any other unappetizing ingredients. At Pei Wei, we just don’t think that’s right. We’re helping consumers make informed decisions about where they eat by launching a petition for restaurant transparency.
