From humble beginnings, EatHere started in the summer of 2015 in Indianapolis with one simple mission: To provide local food lovers authoritative content, credible news, information, and suggestions about restaurants.
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 and through the #eathereindy tag, 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 were too noisy and lacked news and highlights created for and by credible local sources. To address this problem, EatHere was launched to offer online viewers a destination for fun and shareable local stories in over-looked food cities across the country.
