Last month we told you about a mobile app called Allergy Eats that evaluates restaurants' "allergy friendliness."
Now Allergy Eats is hosting the Inaugural Food Allergy Conference for Restaurateurs: What Every Restaurant Should Know About Food Allergies to Ensure Safety and Maximize Customer Engagement, Loyalty, and Revenue.
October 16, 2012 8 AM – 2:30 PM
Seaport Boston Hotel 1 Seaport Lane, Boston, MA
The event is targeted at chefs, restaurant owners, and managers who want to learn how to better serve their patrons with allergies.
The event will feature speakers from Massachusetts Restaurant Association, Legal Sea Foods, the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, Kitchens with Confidence, and Not Your Average Joe’s.
The panel of speakers will discuss four topics:
Food Allergy Basics: This session will spotlight fundamentals, statistics, and the realities of accommodating food-allergic and intolerant guests. It will also discuss what someone with food allergies looks for in a restaurant.
Restaurants That Get it Right: Expert restaurateurs divulge their restaurants’ best practices, as well as their successful food allergy procedures and protocols. They’ll explain why they’re committed to being allergy-friendly and describe guests’ reactions.
Basic Training: Top restaurant trainers will speak about the process of becoming more allergy-friendly. This session will discuss how restaurants can become more accommodating, improve safety and minimize risks, implement and execute food allergy protocols and become more confident in their food allergy procedures.
The Financials Around Food Allergies: Explore the economics of accommodating food-allergic diners. Learn about the increased loyalty and profit opportunities, and learn how your restaurant can make significantly more money by becoming allergy-friendly.
