In January of 2017, it was an important time to elevate our local support of immigrant-run eateries in Nashville, TN. Nashville is very diverse and with that perk, comes great food options! Thus "Immigrant Run Eateries" began. It started as a printable pdf and quickly had over 1,500 downloads. IRE has now expanded into a website that is used as a tool to showcase local immigrant chefs, organize restaurants by cultures, and provides interviews and downloadable maps.

Immigrant Run Eateries has been featured in the New York Times as well as The Nashville Scene. There are future plans to develop this concept by including other cities.
