(Des Moines) The Iowa Restaurant Association has noticed a big increase in people using smart phone “apps” to find a place to eat “out.” Executive Director Jessica Dunker says they’ve been tracking the trends…on the “Dine-Iowa” app.
“And the number one criteria that people are searching at is Gluten free menu,” stated Dunker.
She says a year ago there were only six restaurants on the mobile “app” offering gluten free, that’s now up to 36-restaurants. She says that trend, along with promoting local meats or produce on the menu, has gone over very well with restaurant patrons.
