For many regions of the country, the past year has been challenging for restaurants and caused added upheaval for farm fresh food producers. However, in many parts of the Gulf South, resort and restaurant business is booming, and restaurants that have been closed for months in our beloved culinary capitol of New Orleans are reopening. New opportunities abound as chefs are looking for new producer relationships to meet the needs of their growing business and new business segments including new menu items, grab and go dishes, family style meals, catering and groups, in-room amenities, bar snacks, retail offerings and more.
To help them discover the products they need, EATYALL is kicking off our CONNECT product discovery events with three dates across the coastal South. Each location will provide a casual environment where you can meet one on one with pre-qualified chefs and bar buyers who are ready to partner with you to grow a successful future together.
Participation will be limited to ONE producer per product category and overall space is limited. Events will be held in the following markets. If you are a producer / farmers / beverage interested in sampling your products at one or more of these events, please contact us today as space is extremely limited:
- Monday, May 24 in New Orleans, LA targeting chefs and beverage buyers from across the greater New Orleans area including Metarie, Kenner, North Shore, etc.
- Tuesday, May 25 in Biloxi, MS targeting chefs and beverage buyers from across the Mississippi Gulf Coast
- Wednesday, May 26 in Orange Beach, AL targeting chefs and bar managers from Pensacola to Mobile including resorts and restaurants in Fairhope, Point Clear, Gulf Shores, etc.
Additional dates and locations will be announced soon. Locations are chosen based on demand for products from foodservice buyers.
If you are a chef who would like to register to attend one of these events and meet one on one with farmers and foodmakers directly and sample their products, please register here. If you are chef who thinks an event like this is needed in your market, please let us know; we’d love to consider it and help you connect with great producers, too.
