Here's to a great New Year in food!

By now I'm sure you've seen all the 2017 trend forecasts proclaiming that "grocerants" are one of the hottest trends for the coming year. And they are right!

The National Restaurant Association (NRA) saw this trend coming years ago when we first started joining forces to plan and develop the one-of-a-kind educational programming for our Foodservice@Retail: Grocerant Symposium together. 

Every supermarket and convenience store operator already knows how important this emerging sector is for the retail food world. Together we are witnessing first hand how the evolution of food service is changing these traditional retailers and helping them attract new customers.

The question is: are you prepared?

With NRA's resources at your fingertips you will be!

At the NRA Show 2017 we will build even further on last year's successful educational programs -- and invite you to participate in this year's Foodservice@Retail: Grocerant Symposium starting on Sunday May 21 at 1pm! 

Register now for the "early bird discount" and learn how you and your company can capitalize on this growing trend. This is your opportunity to meet and network with the culinary and retail leaders of the grocerant industry; and then attend the acclaimed NRA 2017 International Foodservice Marketplace - one of the largest and ever-growing food trade shows in the world.

Here's an overview of just some of what you will experience at the Foodservice@Retail: Grocerants Symposium:

  • The State of the Industry 2017 presented by Technomic
  • Ethnic & Retailing Trends in Retail Foodservice
  • Restaurant Design for Supermarkets & Convenience Stores
  • The Recipe for Success: Manufacturers and Retailers Working Together
  • Grocerants & Foodservice Marketing in the Era of Social Media, Facebook LIVE & Pokeman Go
  • How to Acquire Top Talent to Your Retail Environment: A LIVE Culinary Student Panel Discussion

And there is more...

Sunday afternoon join Award Winning Chef Richard Sandoval as he shares his insights as you tour (and feast on his culinary masterpieces of food and cocktails) his one of a kind Latinicity - a unique retail and dining Latin experience (transportation provided for all attendees).

This is your change to learn, network and reap the benefits of what Mintel's 2017 Food Service Trend Report highlighted as the new "other concepts [that] are blurring the lines between retail and foodservice. Grocerants, essentially restaurants housed inside a retail food location, are now the gold standard at many grocery stores."

Reserve your place today, for the "early bird discount" as registrations for this symposium are limited.

I'm looking froward to seeing you in Chicago at the Foodservice@Retail: Grocerant Symposium!
