The Bon Appetit! Bon Appalachia! campaign is a project of the Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC), a regional economic development agency whose mission is to innovate, partner, and invest to build community capacity and strengthen economic growth in Appalachia.

ARC and its Tourism Council, which includes representatives from the 13 states within the Appalachian Region, developed the Bon Appetit Appalachia initiative to highlight the Region’s most distinctive local food destinations.

This campaign was developed and maintained from the summer of 2014 – the summer 2017. Although the content is no longer maintained, Bon Appétit Appalachia! remains the largest searchable online map of local food businesses and entrepreneurs operating in Appalachia. Most of these businesses remain in operation and continue to thrive. Be sure to call before you visit.
