Black-Owned Restaurants

Black-Owned Restaurants

Savor has always been honed in on supporting local restaurants, and this taxing year for small businesses has only solidified the importance of our mission. To be clear, we’re not just talking about COVID-19. We’ve shared in the heartbreak our Black community has felt over the last several months, and all of us should be looking for ways to become better allies. One way is to support our Black-owned restaurants and caterers here in Columbia. Using our platform to recognize these small businesses is just a step we can take to show some much deserved love to our Black community. Whether you’re looking for a new spot to try dinner or a food truck to treat your company, there are plenty of local options available.
