Hi, I have been trying to come up with some solutions to problems I see around me to create value and start. One issue being food allergies, and restrictions in restaurants. I want to be able to gauge how much a headache problem this is but my only source is my sister who is allergic to a lot of things. How should I go about gathering more information? Any help would be appreciated.

Consider that the person with light allergy usually has to adapt, but the customer with a conviction (vegan, halal or kosher) will usually find what they are looking for. So, the allergy in question needs to be severe.

Check local places on google maps, including their menus. Do they list information for allergic customers? If not, why? Call and ask about how they can or cannot accommodate certain food allergies. If they cannot, ask why not. What ingredient are they not able to replace? Only ask about the most common. Check alternative recipes for this online or replacement ingredients.

I read the article and it was very illuminating. I didn't ever think about the fact that just a small intolerable group can sway the rest of the people who don't care very much. In the case of allergies I guess schools not having peanut products follows this. In the case of severe allergies, I think it wouldn't affect foreign restaurants in America as much because there are other options/stores.

I read the article you posted and it got me thinking about the target market I want to help. After thinking about people who have a conviction like you said, I thought the most applicable people would be those accustomed to eating foods and later became severely allergic to them. This way they are more bothered by it than those who always were allergic. I also think that in this case it would be better to ask questions to these people than the stores themselves. I have some leads but I am worried that I may need the help of a doctor/allergist to actually help them.
