5 Reasons to Eat at Local Restaurants When Traveling

Freshness
Whether stocking the local restaurants with Fruits, vegetables, meat, spices or any locally grown produce, you don’t want your food to have to travel further than you did to get there. Locally run dining establishments often purchase their ingredients from local farms & markets. There is less need for preservatives or freezing. Your food will taste more fresh, and reflect the tastes of the region.

Cost Saving
Although restaurants range in quality and price, local establishments often offer “Specials” & Discounts on menu items that are in season, whereas chains & franchises are mainly on a fixed menu nationwide.

Ambiance
Franchises decorate with a fixed style decor that local restaurants do not have to adhere to. A local dining room may be designed with heritage from the areas past, the history of the owners, rich in local garb.

New Experience
If dining at a local restaurant, diners may find a hidden ‘Gem’ of an experience that can not be found when patronizing a franchise or chain restaurant. Whether it be the humble service, a unique entree on the menu, the ambiance of the surroundings or just the theme of the local establishment, the ‘Excitement’ of not knowing what to expect as a first time customer makes for an entertaining or satisfying evening.

Comfort
Ever notice that most of the chain restaurants have cheap seating and less then comfortable waiting areas, not just to save on costs, but there is also the goal to move people in and out as quickly as possible. A local dining establishment enjoys the clientele’s visit to their restaurant, catering to their needs, to have them leave satisfied and recommend them to their friends and family. A refill of coffee or an offering of homemade desserts may be in your future.
