From early beginnings, EatHere started in the summer of 2016 in Indianapolis with one simple mission: To bring diverse communities together through the shared experiences of food.

Cofounders Bradley Houser & Austin Burris personally recognized the frustration within their food community of relying on traditional outlets that saturated the market. With no reliable source for young people, important moments were happening in real-time that weren’t easily accessible to all. Sharing their personal food experiences online, the duo found that friends and strangers were seeking their guidance for the best places to eat for various occasions in Indianapolis.

Brad & Austin felt review platforms lacked credibility and focused on places to avoid. To address this problem, EatHere was launched to offer online viewers a destination for where to eat with informative and shareable local food content.
