Meet The Owner

Amber purchased Fort Wayne Food Tours from founders Randy Harter and Sarah Arnold in the fall of 2019. She moved to Fort Wayne in 2002 from Illinois and fell in love with the city early on. She has been a passionate advocate for downtown development and a staunch supporter of the local food scene.

Friends and colleagues describe her as an effervescent, passionate, community-minded connector. She has over ten years of non-profit marketing and development experience and currently serves as the Executive Editor for glo and HOME Living Magazines.


Randy Harter


Randy Harter started Fort Wayne Food Tours after he and his wife, while on vacations over the years, had experienced the fun of food tours in other cities. A local author and historian, he wanted to share the joy and food of Fort Wayne to the locals that may not often wander the city center, or hear about its cultural and historic past, as well to the many visitors to the area. His passion for his hometown and the unique knowledge he shares is both entertaining and informative.


Sarah Arnold


Sarah is CEO/Social Media Strategist at SociallySeasoned, a digital marketing agency. She loves living in northeast IN with her husband and two girls and entertaining at their home. Sarah’s first food tour experience was in Charleston, SC in 2012 where she fell in love with the concept. She’s honored to be partnering with her father, Randy Harter, in this venture and is thrilled to help bring this experience to Fort Wayne.
