During last night's meeting of the Celiac Support Group of Jacksonville, I mentioned that one quick lunch option is Jimmy John's, because they have a lettuce wrap option on their sandwiches.
However, another member of the group cautioned me that their cheese has gluten, which I found very surprising. I would have never even thought to ask that.
So I checked with Jimmy John's today and got a very quick response. The good news is they said the cheese falls within the FDA's 20 ppm guidelines, so it is considered gluten-free.
Here is the full response I got from Jimmy John's with a list of their gluten-free ingredients:
Thanks for eating at Jimmy John's! I am writing you back in response to your earlier e-mail.
You ask if our menu items are gluten-free:

Wheat bread - It is not gluten free.
Cheese - It is gluten free. (Based on the FDA proposed ruling saying that product with <20ppm gluten can be decaled as gluten free)

We have a great gluten free option..our unwich. Any sub/club minus the bread wrapped in lettuce.
