Discover Peoria features black-owned businesses

Discover Peoria, the new brand for Peoria Area Convention and Visitors Bureau, recently launched Black-Owned Peoria, a campaign focused on highlighting black-owned businesses in the region. The campaign currently features 21 businesses operating in the hospitality and tourism industry, a sector which has felt the impact of COVID-19 the hardest.

“Customer satisfaction is at the forefront while passion and family values are at the core, that’s why Peoria’s Black-owned businesses are essential cornerstones of central Illinois’s unique business and hospitality landscape. We want to aid in bolstering Peoria’s Black-owned businesses so everyone has an opportunity to thrive and to help play a stronger role in the recovery of our local economies.”

– JD Dalfonso, President/CEO of Discover Peoria
