Questions & Answers
What is Georgia Restaurant Road Trip?
It’s a cookbook… and a travel guide… and fun book about all the locally owned, mom and pop, restaurants in the state.
Why should I be in a cookbook?
Because these cookbooks sell. We are the leading producer of regional, state-specific cookbooks. We focus on souvenir cookbooks because they sell. And every copy of this book, promotes your restaurant. Most books in the series sell more than 50,000 copies in the first five years. That means information about your restaurant will be in the hands of families who will be looking for a great place to eat. This book will bring more people to your restaurant.
Your restaurant will be featured on a two-page, full-color spread including a profile, pictures, and recipes.
Do I have to share my signature restaurant recipes?
No. Of course, you may choose to share your signature recipes, and we’ve seen that readers respond well to those recipes. However, you don’t have to share a restaurant recipe at all. If you prefer, send us some of your favorite recipes that you serve to family and friends. Every recipe in the book will be labeled as a “Restaurant Recipe” or a “Family Favorite” so our readers will know if they can expect it on the menu when they visit your restaurant.
Do I have to buy cookbooks?
No. You do not have to purchase books to participate.
Who buys the book once it’s printed?
Our team of inside sales reps sell cookbooks all over the country to gift shops, bookstores, hardware stores, anywhere a cookbook will sell (which is pretty much anywhere). Books are also sold in chain stores, big box wholesalers, and well-known online sellers. We have a website – www.GreatAmericanPublishers.com – that reaches armchair travelers and cookbook collectors across the US.
Why do you produce this series?
The author, Anita Musgrove, has always enjoyed traveling and eating at little mom-and-pop, hole-in-the-wall restaurants. The series was a natural for her. After the GREAT success of her first edition – Alabama Back Road Restaurant Recipes (more than 40,000 copies in print) – Anita continued the series and now has ten other editions – Kentucky, Louisiana, Missouri, North Carolina, South Carolina, Oklahoma, Mississippi, Tennessee and Texas. Georgia Restaurant Road Trip (co-authored with Sheena Ann ) is coming soon.

About the Series
The STATE BACK ROAD RESTAURANT COOKBOOK SERIES is a collection of cookbooks that also serve as a restaurant guide for the state. Each book features information about locally owned restaurants throughout the state and includes one or more recipes from each restaurant. Current editions include Alabama, Kentucky, Louisiana, Missouri, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, North Carolina, Oklahoma and Texas.
Author Anita Musgrove and her late husband, Leonard, always loved traveling the back roads. As they traveled, Leonard and Anita would drop into little mom-and-pop restaurants along the way. After losing her husband to cancer, Anita decided it was time to capture their years of traveling into a cookbook series.
Within the STATE BACK ROAD RESTAURANT COOKBOOK SERIES, Anita’s goal is to present a list of favorite locally owned restaurants that make traveling the back roads delicious. Each book is divided into regions, making it easier to use in the car. At the beginning of each region, you will find a list of restaurants featured in that section. Throughout each section, the restaurants are presented alphabetically by city with a little information about what makes each of them special.
For those arm-chair travelers who don’t have time to hit the road, each restaurant shares some of their favorite recipes – either a recipe served in the restaurant or a family favorite. Every recipe is edited for clarity and presented in a way that makes preparation easy for the home cook.
Within this unique series, Anita takes us to every nook and cranny of a state and allows us to get to know these unique places intimately… especially the food.
I have read the whole book and tell everyone it is such a good read. I was even asked for my autograph. That was a surprise; the lady said she was going to get everyone’s autograph from every restaurant. Thank you for helping to get little Mom & Pop places known as the best places to eat.

I am tickled over my page. I never in my wildest imagination thought it would be done like this. This is one of the best moves I have ever made.
