FRESH. WHOLESOME. TRANSPARENT.
THE WEI FORWARD™
FRESH, WHOLE FOOD
CLEAN & TRANSPARENT
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 sensitive? Yup. One of our commitments is to have continued expansion, and with that comes accommodation of your dietary needs and preferences.
We offer a gluten free menu with several gluten-free dishes and options, including 6 rice bowls with several different gluten-free customization options.
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.
