Are you interested in growing your restaurant’s brand in the great state of Texas? Over the years, our team of consultants has worked with many restaurateurs to increase their market share or bring their first franchise into the state. Our ability to do this comes in large part thanks to our ongoing commitment to education and networking here in the state.
We’re going to be at the upcoming Texas Restaurant Association (TRA) Marketplace Conference, where we’ll be speaking with hundreds of business owners about building their restaurant brand in Texas. We encourage you to come out and see us there!
The event runs July 15 and 16 at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio, TX, and registration is now available open! Click the image to find out more
The TRA Marketplace Conference
Every year the TRA Marketplace Conference brings together some of the leaders in the restaurant industry who offer presentations andeducation about some of the leading trends in food, technology, beverages and much more. Attendees also have the opportunity to check out some of the latest products and services designed to help increase their restaurant’s efficiency.
For those of us whoare exhibitors at the event, it’s a great chance for us to meet face to face with restaurant owners, chefs, purchasing agents, caterers, franchisors/franchisees, corporate executives and representatives from all types of food service facilities and organizations. But for everyone, it’s simply a great opportunity to talk with the “who’s who” of the restaurant industry and find people who can help improve their business.
This year, the event is hosting its first Startup Showcase, which will put the spotlighton some of the most innovative new technologies and processes from companies of all sizes. The showcase will run both days of the convention, and participants in the showcase will have an onstage pitch session on the 15thfrom 2:30-3:30 p.m. at the Big Bend Ideas Stage. During this session, representatives from each company will provide attendees with a short overview of their company, their progress and their growth, as well as the various industry challenges they’re looking to address.
This is the 80thyear of the TRA marketplace, and over these many decades it has become the largest convention of its kind in the southwest. More than 500 exhibitors participate in the event each year, showcasing their food products and beverages, as well as linens, technologies, security products, kitchen equipment and supplies and more.
As Texas consultants who work with restaurant owners, we believe this to be an outstanding opportunity for us to connect with people looking to make their mark in the state. Texas is currently one of the hottest growth markets for the restaurant industry, and we can help restaurant owners achieve their growth goals.
