“We wanted to create a comprehensive platform for everything for them – for food trucks and bakeries – and that is really how Black Restaurant Week was born, as a way to showcase and highlight the culinary business within our community,” said Falayn Ferrell, Black Restaurant Week, LLC’s Operations Managing Partner.


This is the third year of this event in Florida. Ferrell, a Florida A&M University graduate, said the group originally planned to spotlight only Orlando, but the pandemic has prompted them to include the entire state to provide as much support as possible to struggling restaurants.
