If you'll recall, owners and McKinney residents Paul and Lali Miles started the tour service after experiencing such tours in other cities. 
They offered inaugural tours during Home for the Holidays, and recently launched their website where guests are able to get more information and schedule tours!

Included in the six-stop tour is a taste of McKinney history as well. Also, following them on social media will provide you with the inside scoop about new tasty spots downtown. (For example, they recently featured Layered which just celebrated its grand opening this week on east Virginia. And at right is a photo of a stop at the candy case at Goodies Texas.)

"We are in high gear," Lali Miles said. "We have the main tour up and going, are talking to restaurant partners about a potential second tour, and are looking at a special Valentine's Day offering that we'll be announcing soon."

Guests can now learn more about the tours on the newly-launched website, FoodWalksofTexas.com.
