Partnership will allow restaurants to highlight their efforts in accommodating the food allergy community through the use of Interactive Allergen Menus
AllergyEats, the leading online guide to allergy-friendly restaurants, and Gipsee, an end-to-end provider of allergen and nutrition solutions for the restaurant industry, recently announced a new partnership that will enable restaurants to effectively highlight themselves to the food allergy community by broadcasting their use of Interactive Allergen Menus (IAMs) by Gipsee or AllerDining, on the popular AllergyEats platforms.
AllergyEats and Gipsee will begin offering their services together in which restaurants using Gipsee or AllerDining IAMs (AllerDining is Gipsee’s self-serve allergen-analysis module for smaller independent restaurants) are highlighted on the AllergyEats website and app when users search its online restaurant database, via the AllergyEats Partnership Program. The benefit to food-allergic AllergyEats users is significant, allowing them not only to be able to easily identify restaurants using Gipsee’s or AllerDining’s IAM technology, but also by accessing peer-based information about the restaurant’s food allergy-friendliness as well. Through this partnership, users will be able to access critical data, related directly to their allergy needs.
“This partnership benefits both restaurants and diners alike by enabling those restaurants that use Gipsee’s and Allerdining’s Interactive Allergen Menus to better reach the food allergy community that AllergyEats is such an integral part of,” said Paul Antico, Founder and CEO of AllergyEats. “Together, these technologies are extremely valuable tools for those of us who find dining out with food allergies challenging, and we’re pleased to be able to offer this partnership to both our restaurant partners and users.”
“Highlighting Gipsee’s and AllerDining’s IAM restaurant clients on AllergyEats enables AllergyEats users to obtain accurate information from restaurants that have made the commitment to the food-allergic diner by installing Gipsee’s award-winning technology,” said Dilip Chopra, CEO and Co-Founder of Gipsee.
Red Robin, both a customer of Gipsee and a partner of AllergyEats, is supportive of the partnership: “Red Robin is extremely proud of the recognition that our best-in-class allergen program receives,” said Dana Benfield, senior vice president and chief marketing officer at Red Robin. “We take pride in the ability to provide guests with accurate and transparent allergen information for our menu items. The Gipsee Interactive Allergen Menu puts the decision-making directly in our guests’ hands and empowers them with the freedom to customize any Red Robin order, so they can feel comfortable and confident in their choices. Our partnership with AllergyEats compliments our use of Gipsee’s Interactive Allergen Menu by expanding the reach of this product to a broader population within the food allergy community.
