In 2008, Jeff Swedarsky launched a popular culinary-based tour company in Alexandria, Virginia. Since then his company, Food Tour Corporation, has expanded into D.C., Baltimore, Annapolis, and Swedarsky's hometown of Indianapolis.

In 2010, the company tastefully guided approximately 10,000 customers on its various tours.

Next up, says Swedarsky, is Cleveland.

"I believe the way people can learn the most about a culture is through its food," the owner explains.

Heading up the Cleveland outpost will be Sarah Parker, Food Tour's business development manager. The professional tour guide grew up in Sandusky and says that Cleveland makes a natural destination into which to expand.

"One of the great things about Cleveland is that there are still a lot of locally run, mom-and-pop places that many other cities no longer have," explains Parker, who is already in town mapping out upcoming tours.
