Gourmet wings, fries take focus at Chef Tia’s new walk-in restaurant, Chicken Scratch

Indy has a new gourmet wing spot you have to try!

Chef Tia Harrison of Chef Tia & Co. and now, Chicken Scratch Indy joined us today to share more about her latest business venture.

She recently opened Chicken Scratch, a takeout restaurant with a focus on gourmet wings and fries.

It’s located at 5308 N Keystone Ave Indianapolis, Indiana 46220.

This weekend is the perfect time to support a local black-owned restaurant as “Dig In Day” is coming up on Saturday, November 6.

JJ Johnson, James Beard award-winning chef, TV personality and author joined us today to share more about this important initiative.

Restaurants are the cornerstone of many communities, introducing us to new flavors, tastes and trends. 

And the pandemic has hit this industry harder than almost any other, especially those that are minority-owned, with 41% of Black-owned businesses shuttering during the pandemic.

As part of a five-year commitment started to drive $100 million in sales to Black-owned restaurants, Pepsi announced the first-ever “Dig In Day,” an initiative that encourages people to dine-in or order from a Black-owned restaurant. 

By visiting DigInPassport.com people can enter a zip code and find a list of Black-owned restaurants in their area. Then after dining, people are asked to upload a copy of their receipt so their meal can be counted, the impact of supporting Black-owned restaurants can be measured and others can be inspired to follow suit.
