NEW YORK, NY / MAY 17, 2023: Like A Local Tours, a leading food tour company, announced today that it has acquired Sugartooth Tours, a popular dessert tour company in New York City. This acquisition represents a major expansion for Like A Local Tours, as it looks to provide visitors with an even more comprehensive and immersive food experience of the city.

Sugartooth Tours has been a fixture in the New York City tourism industry since 2012, with a range of food tours and experiences that showcase the city’s rich culinary heritage. Its team of knowledgeable guides has helped countless visitors discover some of the city’s most beloved sweet eateries, while also providing a glimpse into the history and culture of each neighborhood.

Its experienced guides and well chosen culinary partners give visitors an insider’s perspective on the city’s diverse neighborhoods that go beyond mere sightseeing.

The acquisition of Sugartooth Tours will allow Like A Local Tours to expand their products to include a range of dessert tours in various neighborhoods. Like A Local Tours plans to add a social impact element to the dessert tours as they have done with the current roster of food tours.

“We are thrilled to welcome Sugartooth Tours to the Like A Local Tours family,” said Lauren Beebe, founder and CEO of Like A Local Tours. “Their dedication to showcasing the best of New York’s pastry and dessert scene aligns perfectly with our own mission to provide visitors with an authentic and memorable culinary experience of the city.
