QSR announced the details of its upcoming Fast Casual 2.0 Meet Up in Boston, the final Meet Up of 2018.

The Boston Fast Casual Meet Up, hosted in partnership with sponsor Dinova, will be at Rosa Mexicano (155 Seaport Blvd.) on August 23 from 6 to 8 p.m. Guests are invited to attend the free event for networking with their fellow fast-casual operators on Rosa Mexicano’s beautiful harbor-side patio. Representatives from more than 35 brands are expected to be in attendance.

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 also traveled to Chicago, Dallas, New York, Miami, and Los Angeles, with representatives from more than 400 brands connecting with peers in their cities. Boston is the final Fast Casual Meet Up of 2018.
