It's almost time for Black Restaurant Week in Huntsville, and if you didn't know, there are many to choose from to support during this time and throughout the year. With a significant uptick in promoting and supporting Black-owned businesses, this is an opportunity to learn about and try new places and help make sure these establishments stay open.
Black Restaurant Week Huntsville will take place June 8 - June 19! There are several events from a discussion on the food service industry to a black bar crawl they will be hosting.
As more chain restaurants move in, small businesses take a major hit. Movements such as Black Restaurant Week are crucial in helping our local Black-owned businesses remain staples in the community for years to come.
The mission and ultimate goal of Black Restaurant Week is not only to fellowship, eat amazing dishes, drink the best of the best and highlight Black Restaurants and Chefs, but it is to bring awareness, support, and drive revenue up for the many black-owned small businesses in the Huntsville and surrounding community.
