The opening of the Allergy-Free Shop was featured in a recent Miami Herald article. Jennifer Herskowitz, mother of three--two of whom suffer from multiple food allergies--recently opened the Allergy-Free Shop in Miami, FL. Jennifer was the winner of the 2008 Miami Herald Business Plan Challenge and has big plans for the store. There, individuals with food allergies and other dietary restrictions can find a wide selection of foods. The store is organized to make it easy for customers to find the products most appropriate for their particular diets. Store shelves bear color coded tags with "free-from" symbols to enable customers to zero in on what they need and spend less time scrutinizing labels.
The Allergy-Free Shop accepts telephone orders and will soon offer online ordering as well. They offer products for the top eight food allergens as defined by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration as well as those free of corn, gluten, sesame, and sulphites.
If you are in the Miami area or have plans to vacation there, you can visit the Allergy-Free Shop at 8803 SW 1132nd Street, Miami, FL 33176. For more information, telephone 305.254.2828 or 1.800.ALLRGY4, or visit the website, www.allergyfreeshop.com.
