There has been a lot of conversation around women entrepreneurs, the gender imbalance in tech (and decision-making roles at large), and the need for greater diversity as a matter of national economic importance. There is however an industry that is already majority-run by women, one that we as consumers have contact with every day: the food industry.
More than 50% of restaurants in the United States are owned by women, and we at FoodtoEat have the good fortune to partner with many strong, courageous individuals who choose to share their passion for food with literally hundreds of people per day. In honor of Women’s History Month, we’re proud to highlight some of these vendors, who have built businesses that are an integral part of their communities.
Happy International Women’s Day!
