Behind every restaurant is an entrepreneur. Behind every entrepreneur is a story. Explore how these local restaurants and entrepreneurs got their start.
the open sign calendar
This calendar is a celebration of Black-owned restaurants in Richmond. Each calendar month, from March 2021 to February 2022, features a different entrepreneur alongside a quote from our interview with them. Our partners, BLK RVA and Richmond Tourism, were instrumental in helping us choose which restaurants to feature. It’s our hope that next time you’re getting takeout or going out to eat—you’ll consider giving your business to one of these twelve restaurants. And that you’ll also consider looking up other Black-owned restaurants in Richmond beyond just the ones we were able to highlight.
One-hundred percent of calendar profits go directly to RVA Community Fridge: a grassroots group of BIPOC community leaders who are promoting equal access to healthy food, by giving it away for free.
