"I just wanted to tell you how thankful I am you convinced us to get on board with The Celiac Scene website a few short years ago. Our gluten-free menu has been, without question, the largest area of growth in our restaurant and we hear time and time again that customers 'found us on the Celiac Scene website.' Even beyond the countless guests you've sent our way, it has been a pleasure working with you in particular. Your passion for promoting the benefits of gluten-free living was apparent the second I met you, and you've always so unbelievably accommodating and willing to help any time I ask. I'm sure you hear this a lot, but I just wanted you to know how much we appreciate what your website has done for our business.

"Ellen Bayens is a fast communicator and a hard worker!"
~ Laurie MacLeod-Stephen, www.SimplyCeliac.info
"The Celiac Scene has been instrumental in growing our gluten free business. Ellen Bayens has mentored us every step of the way to ensure that our products meet all the required safety/procedural requirements for the celiac/gluten-free community. Value for marketing dollars spent advertising on the Celiac Scene has been the best use of my small business marketing budget. I could not receive this much exposure to the gluten-free community any where else. Without the Celiac Scene and Ellen Bayens, I'm not sure we could have ever achieved our current level of success with our gluten-free products."

"Thus far, according to our proprietary ad serving platform (i.e. AdCentric) The Celiac Scene has delivered 116,813 impressions. This is a considerable amount, especially since we planned for 198,000 during the contracted months. These delivered impressions are proving to be of high value to the Chex campaign. Moreover, I believe that since the ads are indeed rotating, this will lead to a greater amount of impressions. We'll be on a road to victory along with mass reach at our grasp. It already seems to be a successful campaign based on my observations."
~ Ryan Hewgill, Cossette Media, General Mills' Chex Campaign (day three)

It is a wonderful tool for the celiac community and we want to continue being part of it! Referring links account for 15% of our website traffic. Converted to "dollars per visit" figure , the advertising had paid for itself in three weeks. A year later we continue to reap the benefits from our investment and receive huge support from Ellen! Thank you!"

Those newly diagnosed are looking for this information for home use and everyone looks for it when they travel! Having access to a dynamic site which can easily be updated makes it the go-to-site for gluten-free living information!"

"We are in Vernon, BC now. Your site recommended KTs restaurant in downtown Vernon. Wow! My son had his first apple pie in two years and the pizza was great! There was a lot of choice and the staff was very helpful!"
"Just got back from a trip to Victoria and The Celiac Scene was a Godsend!! Ate at several of the places listed on your website which were easy to find with the maps – very handy!"
"I ate at The Joint Pizza place (twice!!) and The Noodle Box once - although should have eaten there more it was fantastic! Also bought GF baking from Origin GF Bakery. Fabulous! Keep up the good work!"
"LOVE your site! My 15 year old son was diagnosed 1 year ago and we are traveling for the first time on a family holiday since his diagnosis. To say I am nervous is an understatement. Then I found your site. THANK YOU!!! We are coming to Victoria and he can't wait to try out all the great tasty places! We are from a small town near Edmonton and our choices are slim pickins! I'll shout loud and long to our celiac friends about your fabulous web site! Great job. BC here we come!"
"It was great to hear you talking about The Celiac Scene on the radio this morning. I think your idea is fabulous. Eating out was a great pleasure in life before being diagnosed. Road trips were fun for checking out restaurants along the way. Alas, my first road trip after diagnosis found me eventually going to a clinic for help in stopping the vomiting and diarrhea. In retrospect, I perhaps had caught a bug, but at the time it just scared me about eating "away". Since then I have experienced being told there wasn't anything for me which pushed my rejected and survival buttons both and basically I had dreaded having to travel to care for or visit family. Thanks for your doggedness in getting celiac disease in the news and giving hope to those of us who love to eat out and survive it!"
