Ogden visitors can now taste the flavors of the city with the launch of ‘OTown Food Tours’

Inaugurating a new era of culinary tourism in Ogden, OTown Food Tours is proud to announce the launch of its “Taste Ogden” walking food tour on February 7, 2023. This guided culinary experience will showcase the best of what this historic railroad town has to offer in terms of restaurants and artisan producers. Participants will explore a sampling of offerings that represent the Ogden food scene.  

OTown founder Rick Proffer arrived in Ogden, Utah in 1996 and decided this would be the place to put down roots. With his passion for storytelling, he created OTown Food Tours as a way of celebrating all that is great about this majestic mountain town.

“OTown Food Tours’ mission is to support and celebrate Ogden through food and story,” Proffer said. “As a registered Benefit LLC, we know that when community members care for and support each other, we all thrive. Out of this abundance, a portion of every dollar spent goes to local non-profit organizations as they support children and families in our community.”

After a remarkable career of 25 years in public education, Rick decided to start writing the newest chapter of his life. Combining three passions – food, storytelling and exploring places – he launched OTown Food Tours’;  an opportunity for people to experience and learn about local cuisine while getting acquainted with their destination’s unique history.

“Ogden has a myriad of diverse, vibrant, and creative food and drink offerings, yet there are

currently no food tours operating in our city,” Proffer said. “A food tour has the ability to spotlight, celebrate and support our restaurants, shops, and producers while giving our locals and visitors a ‘Taste of Place.’”
