At Allgo, we are about expanding worlds. Our site provides people an opportunity to look out for each other and help everyone find places they love.
We are building a review website where users rate and review spaces like restaurants and theaters on factors like seat comfort and aisle width.
Our platform is designed with fat people in mind because we believe that all bodies are magnificent and deserve to be comfortable. Everyone should be able to enjoy the world.
For years, Rebecca Alexander (Allgo CEO & Co-Founder) has heard fat people say, “As I got bigger, my world got smaller.”
She felt the same way when she was just 18 and agonized about going to Six Flags with her high school class. She went anyway and she spent the day walking around the giant theme park, playing a version of Russian Roulette: Will she fit on this ride, or will she have to stay on the sidelines while her friends ride without her?
The anxiety Rebecca felt that day never left her.
Rebecca hopes Allgo will help people like her get the information they need to enjoy visiting new places.
