Restaurant Discovery Platform Sirved Acquires AllergyEats
Popular restaurant and menu discovery platform Sirved has announced an expansion to its offerings, following its acquisition of AllergyEats, the leading crowdsourced guide to allergy-friendly restaurants in North America.
A Canadian-based technology company, Sirved Mobile Solutions, Inc., provides an AI-enhanced restaurant and menu discovery tool to millions of users via multiple channels.
According to Sirved, expanding its restaurant discovery options means it can better support the allergy community and help even more people find relevant restaurant information, menus, photos, and reviews.
“We founded Sirved with the goal of making it fast and easy for people to find a great restaurant no matter where they are in North America.” said Jonathan Leslie, President and Co-Founder of Sirved. “The addition of AllergyEats – which will continue to operate separately from Sirved.com – will give us an added resource that people can use to find menus and allow us to help those who experience food allergies.”
Since being founded in 2010, AllergyEats (www.AllergyEats.com), has quickly become the dominant peer-reviewed directory of allergy-friendly restaurants in the U.S. Its users rate restaurants on how willing they are to accommodate food allergies and intolerances so that others can make educated dining decisions.
With over 850,000 restaurants in its database, AllergyEats displays ratings for both local and chain restaurants via its app and website for a huge, albeit frequently overlooked, demographic of over 30 million Americans who live with food allergies and intolerances.
AllergyEats Founder and former CEO, Paul Antico said he was thrilled to have Sirved acquire AllergyEats, adding that, “The acquisition will enhance and increase the information and capabilities offered by AllergyEats for our loyal, dedicated, and growing user base, who not only find allergy-friendly restaurants on the platform’s website and app but rate their own restaurant experiences for the benefit of the whole community.”
What’s more, AllergyEats users also receive access to other relevant restaurant and dining details, including menus, OpenTable reservation capabilities, maps and directions, allergen commitment statements, user comments, and restaurant contact information.
In addition to the AllergyEats website and app feature Top 10 lists, an award-winning blog, destination guides, a robust and engaged social media community, and more.
