We found out the process for being featured on America's Best Restaurants, and that business owners pay a small fee for their service.

What is 'America's Best Restaurants?

Matt Plapp is the CEO and Founder of America's Best Restaurants. Using his branded social media and Youtube channel, Matt and his team feature web episodes of locally-owned restaurants, to attract more local customers. So, unlike a destination food show, America's Best Restaurants focuses on unique spots that locals will love if they hear about them.


What's So Special About Our Local Restaurants?

To answer that question from our perspective, we could be here all day. Of course, we love and support our locally-owned restaurants, and their unique menus and atmosphere. When asked Matt about our area specifically, he told me that we are situated in a very convenient area for their filming purposes. That area just happens to be in Florence, Kentucky. They can easily cover a restaurant up north, and visit several in the Evansville area as they move back south. But first, they have to know about a restaurant.

 Restaurant Owners - Get Featured

America's Best Restaurants basically exists to help promote locally-owned restaurants by filming and producing content that restaurant owners can use on their own social media channels. With that comes a small fee, and that covers the cost for the 3-4 hours the crew is at your location. The goal is to get customers to engage with local eateries and promote your story and vision.
