Arnold “Arni” Cohen opened the doors to the flagship restaurant in 1965 at Market Square Shopping Center in Lafayette. Originally seating a little over 100 people, within 10 years Arni’s at Market Square was one of the largest and most successful restaurants in Indiana, with seating for almost 500 patrons. The company is now owned by Arni’s 2 sons, Kurt and Brad Cohen. Arni Cohen was a board member of the Indiana Restaurant Association and was elected to the Indiana Restaurant Association Hall of Fame in 2002. Arni’s operates 18 restaurants throughout Central and Southern Indiana, as well as Linarco Distributing Company, a food production, and distribution facility.

The company is now owned by Arni’s 2 sons, Kurt and Brad Cohen. Arni Cohen was a board member of the Indiana Restaurant Association and was elected to the Indiana Restaurant Association Hall of Fame in 2002. Arni’s operates 18 restaurants throughout Central and Southern Indiana, as well as Linarco Distributing Company, a food production, and distribution facility. Arni Cohen, founder of Arni’s Restaurants and Indiana Restaurant Association Hall of Fame member, was well-known for his long history of community involvement and we are proud to continue honoring his legacy by hosting this event each year. Since 2003, the Arni’s Charity Classic has raised over $860,000 for Central Indiana charitable organizations. Our primary recipient will be the Indiana Wish. Their mission is to put smiles on the faces of Indiana children, who have been diagnosed with life-threatening illnesses, by making dreams come true. Too many children are fighting for their lives and going through miserable treatments that make them sick for days on end. By granting their wishes, we can build strength, give them something to look forward to, and offer hope for a better future. We will also continue to raise money for the Arnold I. Cohen Memorial Faculty Endowment Award, which was founded in Arni’s honor, to help advance the education of faculty members at Purdue University’s School of Hotel and Tourism Management.
