Many of you know us by our food, but do you know what the mission is behind Not Your Typical Deli? NYT Deli was created to make a difference, not only to serve incredible food, but to also have an integrated work environment for those with autism and other developmental disabilities. We believe this mission should not be exclusive to us and a way of life for our community with regular employment opportunities for those with autism and developmental disabilities.

Share your “Not Your Typical” by posting a photo holding a sign showing that you are a “Not Your Typical . . .” and your location + use the hashtag #NobodysTypical on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter to join us in this movement! Our goal is to spread awareness from Gilbert, AZ to the rest of the world.

About NYT Deli

Not Your Typical Deli is a full service delicatessen and bakery, located in Gilbert, Arizona. We showcase local products and services, including local artists, bakers and other culinary professionals, and provide guests with a unique dining and shopping experience. NYT Deli was created to make a difference, not only do we serve incredible food, we also have an integrated work environment for those with developmental disabilities.

The unemployment rate for adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder in Arizona, is nearly 90%. It is our objective to provide capable adults with developmental disabilities, comprehensive training that will qualify them to work in the restaurant industry. Local culinary businesses will be encouraged to hire our students and they will be informed about the value that our students can bring to their business.
