It’s Acadiana: Out To Lunch

Hosted By Aileen Bennett

OUT TO LUNCH finds creative business consultant Aileen Bennett conducting business Acadiana style: over lunch. Each week Aileen invites guests from Acadiana’s business community to join her. Beyond the foundations of the Acadiana economy – oil, cuisine, music – there is a vast network of entrepreneurs, small businesses, and even some of the country’s largest companies who call Acadiana home. Out to Lunch is the cafeteria of the wider Acadiana business community. You can also hear the show on KRVS 88.7FM.
