Though its title suggests a mere week of great eating, community members have decided to showcase African American entrepreneurship and promote local businesses by hosting the first MKE Black-Owned Restaurant Week.
MKE Black-Owned Restaurant Week is an opportunity for Black-Owned restaurants to bring in new customers and raise awareness. It allows Milwaukee to support minority owned eateries.
Cities across the country often host an annual restaurant week or dining week during which a number of local establishments will offer dining deals to bring in new customers and raise awareness about local businesses. Since 1992, the original Restaurant Week has introduced millions of foodies to new and exciting eateries and become an international institution. Why not bring this same movement to the Black community?
Black Americans are just 13 percent of the U.S. population but will have a buying power of $1.4 trillion by 2019. Because we know that not enough of the money is "flowing back into" black communities – MKE Black Restaurant Week is a method to introduce "foodies to new and exciting eateries" in the black community.
We believe supporting Black restaurants play a crucial role in achieving socio-economic upliftment, and the sustainable implementation of these beliefs will strengthen our communities and open opportunities for future generations. Through supporting African American businesses you're supporting small businesses. You're giving back to the community and bringing some social, economic uplift to the community.
No coupons are needed and each restaurant will have their own specials. It's simply a great opportunity to get out and eat some place where you've never eaten before.
