AllergyEats expands restaurant info, starts listing bakeries, adds special deals
NEW Features on AllergyEats
In the spirit of continuous improvement, AllergyEats has been enhancing existing features of the site, as well as adding new ones, over the past few months.
More Allergy-Friendly Details
While the core of AllergyEats will always be the peer-based allergy-friendliness ratings, there is a lot of additional information presented to help make this your one-stop-shop before dining out with food allergies. From Day 1, every one of our 600,000+ restaurant listings has included a phone number, map, and directions, and many have had a link to the restaurant’s website. Now, we have enhanced information on over 250,000 individual restaurant listings to include one or more of the following: menu, allergen list, nutrition information, gluten-free menu, certifications, and more! This new information (in the Restaurant Information column of the “Find a Restaurant” search results page) makes it even easier to find everything you need before dining out by just visiting one site: AllergyEats.
Due to significant community demand, AllergyEats is also introducing the widespread rollout of allergy-friendly bakery listings. This dedicated page includes an informational list of bakeries that advertise being free of at least one major food allergen or gluten. (As opposed to restaurants, bakeries will not be rated.) The list is sorted geographically by state then city for ease of use. To see the pre-release list in its infant stage, please click here. For future use, please click “Bakeries” on the left-hand sidebar of the core AllergyEats site.
If you know of a bakery that might like to be included in our list, please have the owner or manager contact us by clicking the Contact Us button on the AllergyEats home page. We will need their name, street address, phone number, and web address. Listings are free with only 2 requirements: the bakery must have a physical store front and the website must prominently display its allergy-friendliness.
AllergyEats is also continuing to add special deals from partners.Following a successful trial promotion last year with Jules Gluten Free for a free Thanksgiving e-cookbook, AllergyEats has now partnered with Allergy Apparel to offer $2 off any order. (The special Allergy Apparel checkout code is included within their “ad” on the right side of all AllergyEats pages.) Look for more special deals in the near future, with a “very significant” promotion beginning during Food Allergy Awareness Week, May 8-14. Watch our press releases and this blog for details. (Note that AllergyEats does not currently ask for, nor receive, any compensation for offering deals to its members. It asks partners to pass all savings on to AllergyEats users.)
