Meet David Bannister. He is a local Hoover foodie and CEO of FOMO!
I am a Hoover resident of 25 plus years. I pride myself on finding the most delicious, most enjoyable, and best overall restaurants/foods in Hoover. I also have a terminal case of Fear of Missing Out (FOMO).
I love this city and the abundance of food options it has to offer. So, Enjoy Hoover, my mission is to give anyone in Hoover (resident or guest) an insider’s guide, using a 10 Fork rating system on what to have, what to order, and where to go.

How long have you lived in Hoover?

Work and the School System

Hoover Football, and Hoover is the epicenter of new things in Alabama.
What do you want people to know about you?
I love travel, food, sports, family, and I have FOMO.
I’ve enjoyed serving on numerous Hoover organizations boards, being appointed to two terms on a school board, starting a kindness charity in leadership for Hoover-Neighborhood Bridges, starting two business in Hoover, and watching my kids experience life in Hoover. They have played in Hoover youth sports and grown up in Hoover City Schools, and Kelly and I now live and will retire in Hoover at Abingdon by the River. We love it here. We love Hoover.
