LaTrelle’s New Spaces Will Prioritize Local Restaurants and Brands Alongside Custom Art and More
HOUSTON – January 11, 2023 – (Newswire.com)
LaTrelle’s, the premier Houston-based firm specializing in owning and operating award-winning franchised and licensed restaurants in major airports across the country, has announced an exciting new $334 million contract with the City of Houston for William P. Hobby Airport, the first and only 5-Star airport in North America. LaTrelle’s will begin work on the renovation of the airport’s core dining destinations later this year.
Occupying 17,000 square feet of restaurant space, the new additions will elevate beloved local Houston brands and ensure national favorites are also offered with LaTrelle’s signature blend of elite service, quality, and consistency. Feature brands LaTrelle’s is proud to operate through franchise or license agreements at Hobby Airport will include Common Bond, The Rustic, Velvet Taco, Dish Society, Pinks Pizza, and Fat Cat Creamery, as well as Peet’s Coffee, Jersey Mike’s, Wendy’s, and Dunkin’.
Construction will take approximately two years to complete. Food and beverage service will be uninterrupted at the airport as renovations are carried out in phases, ensuring travelers have myriad dependable dining options every step of the way.
Founded by W.A. James Sr., LaTrelle’s debuted in Houston almost 40 years ago. As a bakery in the heart of Hobby Airport, LaTrelle’s of Houston became an instant go-to for travelers thanks to delicious baked goods relying on James family recipes, as well as treats from other hometown vendors. LaTrelle’s soon added the first airport Wendy’s and Subway in the country to its Hobby Airport portfolio. Currently operating more than 30 restaurants in international airports throughout the U.S., LaTrelle’s has earned a reputation for excellence and honesty among restaurant operators, the country’s busiest airports, and other industry leaders.
“The first LaTrelle’s airport location was in Hobby Airport. There, in just 350 square feet, we sold our grandmother’s recipes,” said Chris James, Business Development Director of LaTrelle’s. “Our family all worked there. To grow from that to now overseeing and operating this 17,000-square-foot, multi-brand initiative is such a proud moment for LaTrelle’s. We are still a small, family-operated business–and historically, projects of this scope have gone to larger corporations. But we work hard, every single day, inspired by one another and our city.”
“We are bringing ourselves to this project, and we are Houston,” said Cameron James, Operations Director of LaTrelle’s. “Including national brands alongside a list of top local brands in our new plans for Hobby Airport was a natural choice for us, rooted in trust and relationships. We put together a proposal that aims to do right by our restaurant operators and the airport alike–everyone wins. When a local, family-owned and operated business like us is given the opportunity to spearhead a venture like this, it also sends an important message to other entrepreneurs: This is something that can happen in this city.”

The podcast addresses livability metrics and recent findings surrounding the health and wellness challenges Black women face in Northeast Ohio, along with sharing firsthand accounts of Black women’s experiences in Cleveland’s workplaces, schools, and educational systems.
CLEVELAND – January 11, 2023 – (Newswire.com)
Ohio’s largest independent, publicly supported media organization, Ideastream Public Media (Ideastream), and Evergreen Podcasts (Evergreen), one of the fastest-growing podcast networks in the United States, are teaming up to produce a new journalistic podcast series, Living for We. The podcast addresses livability metrics and recent findings surrounding the health and wellness challenges Black women face in Northeast Ohio, along with sharing firsthand accounts of Black women’s experiences in Cleveland’s workplaces, schools, and educational systems.
Living for We is a part of Connecting the Dots between Race and Health, an ongoing Ideastream Public Media initiative that looks at how racism contributes to poor health outcomes in Northeast Ohio, along with uncovering what actions local institutions are taking to tear down the structural barriers to good health.
The initial data that inspired Living For We was released back in 2020 when cityLAB of Pittsburgh released a study that ranked Cleveland dead last in terms of livability for Black women. In response, Cleveland’s Bethany Studenic and Chinenye Nkemere of Enlightened Solutions published Project Noir, a survey featuring over 450 Black women from the Cleveland area who share accounts of frustration, isolation, marginalization, and discrimination, within the workplace, healthcare facilities, and the education sector. With ChiChi and Bethany of Enlightened Solutions on their team, Ideastream has worked with Evergreen Podcasts to explore these findings through their new audio series, Living for We.
“I’m so proud that we are sharing the unfiltered voices and perspectives of Black women in Cleveland from their lived experiences. We have some well-known guests, including Samaria Rice – the mother of Tamir Rice, and Ayesha Bell Hardaway – Case Western Reserve professor and interim monitor overseeing Cleveland police reform,” says Host Marlene Harris-Taylor. “There are also many other women from all walks of life who share their unique experiences about the education, health, and business sectors in Cleveland and what Black women must do to navigate these spaces.”
The limited-run journalistic podcast series will be released weekly over three months, beginning March 1st, 2023. Season One of the Connecting the Dots between Race and Health Podcast: Living for We, is made possible by generous support from the Dr. Donald J. Goodman and Ruth Weber Goodman Philanthropic Fund of the Cleveland Foundation. One can subscribe to the podcast on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts, and many other podcast platforms.
“Evergreen is thrilled to be a production partner for the Living for We podcast,” noted Michael C. DeAoia, Chief Executive Officer of Evergreen Podcasts, “When we launched the company six years ago this month – this was the type of investigative, journalistic content we were dreaming of creating. Ideastream has been a wonderful and provocative partner on this podcast. It is required listening.”
The partnership with Ideastream adds to Evergreen’s ever-increasing robust lineup of over 200 podcasts on six unique podcast networks – Evergreen, Killer Podcasts, Pit Pass Moto, Five Minute News, Ars Longa Media, and Big Whig Podcasts. Evergreen is headquartered in the Downtown area of Cleveland, Ohio.

LOS ANGELES – January 11, 2023 – (Newswire.com)
Website Depot, an omnichannel digital marketing agency in Los Angeles, has announced they will be expressing their full support of #WearBlueDay. On Jan. 11, National Human Trafficking Awareness Day, Website Depot partakes in activities to support the cause, warn others of the dangers of human trafficking, and stand with those who hope to ultimately end human trafficking.
Started by the Department of Homeland Security, 2023 will be the Blue Campaign’s largest initiative. According to the DHS website, The Blue Campaign is a national public awareness campaign designed to educate those in law enforcement, lawmakers, businesses, and the general public about the prevalence of human trafficking, how to become aware of it, and how to take appropriate actions against it.
To participate in #WearBlueDay, the Blue Campaign and Website Depot invite the public to take photos of themselves, friends, family, and colleagues wearing blue clothing and share them on social media – Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram – along with (the) #WearBlueDay hashtag. According to DHS organizers, anyone and everyone are welcome to participate, regardless of location.
“Here at Website Depot, we’re always glad to be able to support worthy causes, which Wear Blue Day absolutely is. Human Trafficking is an evil that far too many don’t realize the full extent of. It’s easy to think of human trafficking as something that ‘doesn’t happen in your area,’ but, unfortunately, human trafficking can and does occur practically everywhere throughout the United States and beyond. Website Depot has offices all around the globe, so we know just how pernicious human trafficking can be. Through this campaign, we hope to raise awareness of human trafficking, so that it can be stamped out as much as possible. We stand with those who are taking great steps forward to do exactly that,” said Danny Star, CEO and Founder of Website Depot.
Website Depot is an L.A.-based, full-service web agency that provides omnichannel digital marketing services for attorneys, rehab/treatment centers, and many others all across the world.
