A safe haven for those with food allergies 2014-09-09

The menu at Four Kids Coffee is peanut- and tree nut-free. But owners Catherine and Jason Sackett make sure their shop steers clear of the other top eight food allergens as well.
\n\\n
\n\\nThe Sacketts opened Four Kids Coffee in Canton as an extension of their home. Their daughter, Lily Kate, was diagnosed with severe food allergies, and with that in mind, the Sacketts developed an allergen-free policy and menu for their coffee house.
\n\\n
\n\\nCustomers can order wraps, salads and soups, in addition to coffees and pastries. Homemade black beans and rice is a featured menu item.
\n\\n
\n\\nBefore opening Four Kids, the couple toured the country, taking notes on what they liked and didn’t like about different coffee houses. After developing their business plan, they began researching products and touring facilities to find products that met their high standards.
\n\\n
\n\\nThe building itself is designed to be as environmentally friendly as possible and features a supervised creative play space where children can play while parents relax.

The building’s foyer has a window into the dedicated allergen-free kitchen, a feature that Catherine insisted be included in the plans. She says that seeing inside the kitchen is what it would take for her to let Lily Kate eat in a restaurant.
