The Western Foodservice show came to a close yesterday with an increase in attendance of over 20% from the previous year. People were looking for solutions and the show had a Solutions Center that provided expert advice to attendees.
Linda Duke gave a educational seminar to kick-off the event entitled "Creating Awareness and Generating Sales," to the standing room only crowd.
Duke Marketing hosted a cocktail reception and guests included Scott Shaw, founder of FishBowl Marketing, Lucy Logan, CEO of FoodCalc, Mike Fryer, publisher of Food & Beverage Magazine of Las Vegas, Bill Taylor, founder of Willies Burgers, and more!
Sunday, August 15th, Linda Duke had the distinct pleasure of meeting and hearing US Senate Candidate Carly Fiorina present to the California Restaurant Association & Education Foundation Board Members joint meeting. She shared her thoughts on where she stands with many issues and proclaimed, "I am not here to talk about the republican or democratic party, I am here to talk about the HAD ENOUGH party."The Chairman's Ball was a great event held at the Grammy Museum on Sunday night. The food was incredible from Wolfgang Puck and the outdoor dining area was the perfect setting to send Chairman Russ Bendel, CEO of The Habit Burger off from his year of service.
The last day of the show was exciting since CRAEF (California Restaurant Association Education Foundation) raised almost $5,000 by selling The Habit Burger gift certificates for $5 each.
