[UPDATE: The venue for the Dallas Fast Casual Meet Up has changed to Ida Claire, at 5001 Belt Line Rd.]
QSR announced the details of its upcoming Fast Casual 2.0 Meet Up in Dallas.
The Dallas Meet Up will be hosted at Ida Claire (5001 Belt Line Rd.) on April 11 from 6 to 8 p.m. Guests are invited to attend the free event for some upscale Southern cuisine, a wide range of delicious cocktails and beers on tap, and networking with their fellow fast-casual operators.
The Fast Casual Meet Ups are a local networking opportunity for fast-casual operators, executives, chefs, managers, and other team members, encouraging education and collaboration among industry peers over free food and drink. The series launched in 2016 and has brought together hundreds of fast-casual innovators around the U.S.
“We launched our Fast Casual 2.0 Meet Ups as a way for us to meet face to face with fast-casual operators around the country, but more importantly, as a way for operators in cities across the U.S. to meet each other,” says Sam Oches, QSR editor. “There’s so much exciting innovation going on at the local level in these cities, and we wanted to create a space where those innovators could come together outside the pressures of their day-to-day work.”
In 2018, the Meet Up series has already traveled to Chicago and will also visit Boston, Los Angeles, Miami, and New York.
