Rolling Out The Flavor


New website promotes local, black-owned food businesses

The Shreveport-Bossier Convention and Tourist Bureau announced the launch of a new website promoting black-owned food businesses in Caddo and Bossier parishes, www.ShreveportBlackRestaurants.com. The site was developed in partnership with Shreveport-based food and travel blogger Jada Durden, author of www. LovingThisLifeJada.com, who recently published an extensive list of black-owned restaurants, food trucks, caterers, event venues and more. Visitors to the site can browse a general list of all black-owned food businesses currently in the database or sort businesses into popular categories like “Sweets & Treats,” “Food Trucks” and “Catering Services.” Site users may also download trip itineraries that highlight black-owned businesses.

“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.”

Any owner or manager of a black-owned food business located in Caddo or Bossier parish may request that their business be listed on the new website. To be included, visit www.Shreveport-Bossier.org and click the graphic that reads “Request a Listing.” When submitting a listing request, business owners should be sure to select “Yes” when asked if their business is black-owned.

“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. “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.”

For more information, visit www.ShreveportBlackRestaurants.com or call 800-551-8682.
