  1. I heard you guys are test marketing gluten free buns in Dallas, is that true?

    • Hi Melissa,

      Not quite. We’re developing gluten free buns internally, but they haven’t made it to public test yet. Should be soon, though. We know gluten free options are an important issue with many folks!

      • I agree – I’m in Kansas City and I can’t tell you how much I miss eating at Schlotzsky’s Deli!!!! Please hurry with the gluten free! 🙂

    • Really miss eating your great sandwiches. I previously ate at Scchlotzsky’s 2-3 times per week. But need gluten free now. Please hurry with those GF buns.

    • I just went to Schlotzsky’s today (Austin, TX) and while I was waiting for my salad saw that they have gluten-free buns! Haven’t tried them yet but I want to next time!

  3. I’m another lover of Schlotzky’s sandwiches and just recently found out I need gluten free bread! Was wondering if 2012 might be the year for gluten free sandwiches?

    • We’re hoping so, Marti, but it all depends on how our testing goes. We want to make sure any gluten free options we offer are as awesome as our Fresh-from-Scratch buns we bake everyday. We’ll keep you posted here and on our Facebook page at http://www.facebook/com/schlotzskys

      • Please hurry with the gluten free buns. I miss your sandwiches. My husband and I both love your sandwiches, but when I go with him, I cant eat. There are many of us out here waiting on the gluten free buns. Thanks!

      • Hey Kerri – Thanks for the input. Perfecting a gluten free bun is harder than we thought! We want to make sure our gluten free options are of the same quality as our fresh-baked bread, so it’s been hard finding the perfect option, but we are working on it! – Amanda

  4. I had the gluten free sandwich at the Lamar St. Schlotzkys and it was outstanding! I love Schlotzkys and it is wonderful to get to eat at your restaurant again. Thank you, thank you!

  5. How is the gluten free bun going? I really MISS your sandwiches. If you could come up with a GF bun that is decent I will be back everyday.-Kami

    • We are still working on the gluten free bun. We have some in test in a very limited number of locations and once we get those results, we’ll have a better idea of how and when we will move forward with getting the gluten free bun in our restaurants. Thanks for checking with us! – Amanda

  6. Oh Gosh count me in too on the gluten free bandwagon. Ever since I’ve had to quit gluten.. the one thing I miss more than anything is Schlotzkys. Just thinking about it makes me cry!

    • We’re working on it! There are gluten free buns in test in a small number of locations. Keep your fingers crossed for good results so we can get them out systemwide! – Amanda

    • I couldn’t agree more with Kate! the biggest thing I miss since going GF is Schlotzkys. I honestly went there every day for about 8 straight years before the diagnosis of celiac.

      Heard your GF sandwich was good in test market-please release to CO and AZ!

  11. Please, please, please come out with a gluten free bun! I know it won’t hold a candle to your signature buns, but would love to be able to eat at Schlotzkys again. And while your at it…I am sure gluten intolerant kids would appreciate you pizza being on a GF crust!

    • We’re working on it, Tammy! We want our gluten free option to be as close to our regular bread as possible. Stay tuned and thanks for your patience! – Amanda
