About

TAB Street - Allergy Free - Gluten Free
TAB Street - Allergy Free - Gluten Free

Hello there and welcome everyone to the TAB Street campaign.  It's been put off as long as it could and the debating had to end sometime, all the questions of, is it good enough, how many listings should there be before a campaign, how many listings in each state?  When would the questions end? So, taking a leap of faith the decision was made to show what has been done so far.  The website is up and running but it's time to get things done a bit faster and to make that happen it takes funding. 

This project got started out of desperation, frustration, and of course being hungry when being out and about. Plus if you were out with others would they be patient, would they walk out with you if the restaurant didn't have anything you could eat?

With a restaurant here and a restaurant there, oh my! It was like playing a game of choosing which one could handle multiple allergies or even just one, let alone, would they be willing to change something on their menu to met those allergy requirements. It becomes easier to stay at home and stop going out to eat. But, one has to eat out eventually so TAB Street was born. 

So that it might benefit:

  • Not knowing which restaurant works with your particular allergy or multiple allergies
  • Eating out can't be taken for granted
  • Sometimes eating out is a necessity
  • Food allergies - Gluten Free - Celiac Disease - food intolerance's shouldn't mean that you always need to stay local

The better the information at hand, the better a choice that good be made for all.

So what exactly is TAB Street?  TAB Street is a website that has listings that have been verified to have allergy free or gluten free information and it has been found that sometimes their is both.  These listings cover restaurants, bakeries, hotels and more. It takes time and patience to review websites for that information. TAB Street, at the time of this writing has over 2600 listings which are color coded for allergy information, gluten free information among other listings that benefit both groups. 

TAB Street includes:

  • Verified information at time of entry for allergy free information and/or gluten free
  • Geolocation up to 100 miles for travel at home or on the road
  • With geolocation, directions are within the site for listings
  • Only listings that have allergy free and/or gluten free information available on website
  • All types of restaurants - including ice cream shops and bakeries
  • From pizzas, to hamburgers, cakes and fine dining
  • Celiac Disease and food intolerance resource
  • Currently over 3000 listings
  • Search by one or multiple allergies, city, category, state and current location radius up to 100 miles or a combination thereof

On the table are enhancements that are scheduled for a later date that we want to try and push up to earlier dates such as special events and menus, reviews and comments.  The focus is getting in listings to make the site a more viable site for when you or someone you love is hungry but can not just go out and eat anywhere. Being able to allow reviews and comments hasn't been turned on yet because there isn't the staff for it at the moment.

The funding will help in getting this moving on a faster pace and allow to pay for data entry, research, consulting and adding to the (paid) staff.

Why is this important?  There are over 15 million people with allergies and they range in all ages, from young to old. Those 15 million people have family and friends that don't want to exclude them on eating out adventures, road trips, and travel.

Restaurants are taking notice and making the changes to their website, menus, dedicating kitchen area and training their staff.

Current plans are in progress to branch out to Canada, Australia, and the United Kingdom.  Those sites will open in 2018 or when 500 listings are reached, which ever is sooner.

Other ways you can help

Just because you can't donate monetarily doesn't mean that you can't help out! Please feel free to use the share tools on this site as well as old fashion sharing methods (word of mouth/email) to help spread the word. Chances are if you are reading this far that you too are either affected by food allergies or know someone close to your heart that is. I am asking that you reach out to anyone that might find this allergy friendly and gluten free website useful and perhaps they can help spread the word as well.

Anyone be they young or young at heart with any of these life changing diseases, food allergies, gluten free and Celiac Disease might appreciate having a new resource, and the people that know them, support them and care for them.

Risks and challenges

Risks and Challenges:

Risks - minimal, since the site is up and running. Without funding, might not meet the goals of the other countries within the time frame and the current plans in place to add features. Plus, without the funding can't get the extra staff to get details and listings in a timely manner.

Challenges - in finding resources that actually do list allergy free and/or gluten free information available on the websites. Those restaurants that went that extra mile to add the information to their website.
