Fare, foodservice at retail, took place this week in Scottsdale, Arizona with record temperatures but the event was just as HOT!!!! Over 350 senior executives from the top convenience store chains, gas stations, universities, hospitals, in the U.S. gathered for the annual event to learn and share the latest trends and ideas. Linda Duke, restaurant and multi-unit marketing expert of Duke Marketing was a featured speaker and shared numerous marketing strategies to a full house Wednesday. "Staying competitive in the foodservice industry is getting tricky today," said Duke. "Brands have to stay relevant and stand out to gain consumers tight-fisted buying behavior today."
CSP Media put on the popular fourth annual event which attracted the United States Olympic Committee, the Navy, and other top foodservice operations like Kwik Stop, Circle-K, BP, Valero, Mansfield Oil, and Universities: Michigan State, Iowa State, San Diego State, and Univeristy of Conneticut to name a few.
The After Dark event was well attended and guests enjoyed pool tables, putting green, karaoke and cocktails. For some....cocktails and karaoke don't mix!!!!
