Sure, everybody loves food.  And it tastes even better when we’re able to purchase it from our neighbors.

But do you ever wonder what it takes to start, manage and grow a successful food business?  Join the Marketing Roundtable for something different:  a panel discussion with four gastropreneurs.  

They’ll share their stories about what's worked well (or not so well) and tips for attracting and keeping customers.
