Tour The Trends Banner

Foodservice operations come in many forms – commercial restaurants, hotel service and stadium operations among others – and each sector has a unique set of demands for its back of house operations.

Operators, consultants and dealers constantly seek information on the latest trends to help with their kitchen designs. Thus, we launched the inaugural Tour the Trends, an invitation-only, behind-the-scenes tour of unique spaces across the industry.

On Tuesday, September 10, limited spaces will be available to experience curated front and back of house tour of Wrigley Field and some of the surrounding restaurants that have been open for less than two years. In the past three years, the space around Wrigley, one of Chicago’s iconic attractions, has transformed into a gathering place for family, friends, neighbors and tourists. And foodservice is at the heart of that metamorphosis.

We’ll open with a lunch and state of the foodservice industry presentation at noon at the Cubs office at Gallagher Way. We’ll then split up groups to tour some of the leading-edge restaurants along Clark Street spanning several service styles, as well as a handful of new, leading-edge stadium foodservice operations. You’ll not only get a behind-the-scenes look at the space, but we’ll also supply food and beverage from each restaurant. Following will be a networking event with cocktails and appetizers.

Thanks to our generous sponsors, attendance to this event is free. The only out of pocket costs are your travel and accommodations.
