Taste Philadelphia’s Diverse Culture
Black Restaurant Week is committed to the education and awareness of the Black Culinary Industry in the United States of America. Using a combination model of awareness and education events, Black Restaurant Week will stimulate growth of African American owned culinary businesses and farms across the United States. To achieve its mission of growth in the culinary industry, Black Restaurant Week aims to create experiences that will cater to a diverse culture of tastemakers, professionals and area foodies looking for exposure to delicious food and exquisite wines.
Black Restaurant Week was established in Houston, Texas, in the spring of 2016. The model was a proven success with over $50,000 of revenue generated in the Houston economy through black owned restaurants. This success has opened the door for expansion to other markets across the United States. Our goal is to broaden our model nationwide to provide awareness of the Black Culinary industry which is a key ingredient to the American culture.
