Homegrown Highway is a heart project for Eat My Catfish. It’s not about advertising or making money – it’s about returning to our roots, and celebrating the fantastic local food scene in Arkansas. Our story is similar to those featured in this series – businesses with a passion for food, and a dream to chase after passionately.
Join us as we share some of our favorite Arkansas diners and the stories behind them. New episodes coming soon, stay tuned!
Homegrown Highway Trailer
Hey, everybody. Travis Hester, founder and president, Eat My Catfish, and we are on the highway. Today we are headed to Conway, where our original trailer is parked. This is the first in a little bit of a series called Homegrown Highway, where we focus on local businesses, particularly restaurants. We want to take you back to those roots and really focus on other local restaurants right now.
COVID’s really changed everything and a lot of people have been impacted, so we want to take you behind the scenes to get to know some of these other small restaurants and small businesses that have been impacted and let you understand what makes them special, why we admire them.
The reason we’ve been able to make it through COVID is because of you and our great employees, and we want to share y’all with them. We’re excited to do it, we’re excited to support the local restaurant industry. We encourage you all to get out there and support them as well.
The other thing we’re going to do is we’re going to bring them some secret ingredients and have a little fun with them. We may bring some MawMaw sauce or some crab legs, or some Willie Dust, and we’re going to throw it out there and see what they can make with it.
