“The Mid-Ohio Valley has a great selection of locally owned restaurants and we hope the public will be excited to participate in this event. The goal of Restaurant Week is much greater than just drumming up business at what is typically a slow time of year in the restaurant business. Although that’s important and valuable, we also hope to attract first-time visitors to participating restaurants and convert them into fans and regular supporters of locally owned establishments. During Restaurant Week, diners can have great meals at one fixed price and also feel great about supporting small business,” said Dickinson Gould, president of Buzz Food Service, based in Charleston.
