Back In Business

Dining at the Black-eyed Pea used to be as much of a tradition in Arkansas as eating black-eyed peas on New Year's Day. We can't help you if you missed your peas this past Jan. 1, but we've got good news if you miss the restaurant.

By this summer, a new Black-eyed Pea will open in the shopping strip next to Kroger's on Shackleford Road. Prufrock Restaurants once operated two Black-eyed Peas in Little Rock until Unigate PLC, the multi-billion food production/distribution corporation out of London, bought the company.

The original Black-eyed Pea restaurants in Little Rock, Memphis, Oklahoma City and Tulsa were sold to the Dixie Cafe with the understanding that the owners would change the name.

Now, Unigate is expanding Blackeyed Peas across the country. As of July 1990, there were 72.
