If you work in the food service industry, you’re busy busy busy, but you can take a half-day to join other restaurant owners, managers and operators for one of the most inspiring hospitality events of the year — right? Attending Food For Thought, presented by Boston-based POS system Toast, is your key to taking your business to the next level. Interactive sessions will give you the tools you need to amplify your recruitment strategy (learn how to hire and retain top talent), strengthen your brand strategy (yes, your online reputation is super important!), and get ahead in the technology game (improve your efficiency like mad). Hear from seasoned speakers like Heather Lynch of Bar Mezzana, John Myers of Eventide Fenway, Samantha Gormley of Capo, Eric Papachristos of Saloniki and Irene Li of Mei Mei Street Kitchen who’ll share their stories of what’s worked well for them and what hasn’t. The coolest part? It’s free, and you’ll leave with insights you can put into action right away. For anyone who’s part of the restaurant community, this is a can’t-skip event. Doors open at noon on Monday, May 7th at Capo in South Boston. Sign up here for free.
