    Fast-casual operators network at the New York Fast Casual Meet Up in April.

    QSR announced the details of its upcoming Fast Casual 2.0 Meet Up in Miami.

    The Miami Fast Casual Meet Up, hosted in partnership with sponsor TABASCO® Brand, will be at House Kitchen & Bar (180 Aragon Ave., Coral Gables) on June 14 from 6 to 8 p.m. Guests are invited to attend the free event for some new American cuisine, a wide range of 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's 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, Dallas, and New York, with representatives from more than 150 brands connecting with peers in their cities. The series will also visit Boston and Los Angeles later this year.
