SHREVEPORT-BOSSIER CITY, La. (KSLA) - The Shreveport-Bossier Visitors Bureau launched a new website promoting black-owned restaurants and food businesses on July 7.
Visitors on ShreveportBlackRestaurants.com are able to browse businesses and restaurants by using the pull-down menu.
“Our community is home to many outstanding, Black-owned food businesses, many of which are also family-owned small businesses,” said Stacy Brown, president of the Shreveport-Bossier Convention and Tourist Bureau, in a news release. “Especially in light of the many challenges currently facing small business owners, we want to do anything and everything that we can to support them.”
Durden recently published an extensive list of Black-owned restaurants, food trucks, caterers, event venues on her Facebook page:
“I saw a need to be able to identify these Black-owned businesses in order to be able to support them,” Durden said. “So, I reached out to the Tourist Bureau and said ‘let’s get this website going.’ It’s been a collaborative partnership.”
