About Enjoy Hoover

Enjoy Hoover is the result of a vision of David Cohen, owner of The Whole Scoop Ice Cream Shop and founder of the Hoover Restaurant Alliance. He works with two local residents to make the website and bi-monthly magazine come to life: Matthew Allen, owner and publisher of Bham Family magazine, and Mitzi Eaker, owner of Mitzi Jane Media. The website and coming publication (July/August 2022) is a project by three residents who love Hoover and want to see their city thrive and support our local business community and restaurant owners.

Enjoy Hoover exists to highlight all the great dining and entertainment that Hoover has to offer, and to show off our city to everyone who lives here and who visits.

David, Matthew, and Mitzi hope you will take the time to Enjoy Hoover!
