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

    The Los Angeles Fast Casual Meet Up, hosted in partnership with sponsor TABASCO® Brand, will be at Prank Bar (1100 S. Hope St.) on July 19 from 6 to 8 p.m. Guests are invited to attend the free event for networking with their fellow fast-casual operators at downtown L.A.’s first walk-up bar.

    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, New York, and Miami, with representatives from more than 200 brands connecting with peers in their cities. The series will also visit Boston later this year.

    To RSVP to the Los Angeles Meet Up, just click here to fill out the RSVP form no later than Friday, July 13, and QSR will hold your free spot for you (vendors and suppliers are not permitted). Questions? Shoot a note to Sam Oches at [email protected].
