Fast-Growth Champions: A taste for business

Fast-Growth Champions: A taste for business

Thursday, September 21, 2017 - 5:30pm to 7:30pm
Calgary Farmers' Market
510 77 Ave SE, Calgary Alberta

Calgary has a large food scene driven by a passion for locally-sourced ingredients paired with the creativity to create a beautiful dish. Local chefs and food bloggers alike often take the form of celebrities and are known for having a drive to succeed.

For food entrepreneurs it's not all fame, often it’s long hours juggling brick and mortar locations with catering and events, sourcing the best ingredients, and making the balance sheet balance.

At our next Fast-Growth Champions, you'll get the inside scoop from three local foodies who have managed to grow thriving businesses during a time when many restaurants are shutting their doors. 

  • Nicole Gomes - Chef/Owner, Nicole Gourmet, Co-owner, Cluck n' Cleaver, 2017 Winner Top Chef Canada All-stars
  • Brett McDermott - Owner & Director, Our Daily Brett
  • Leslie Echino - Owner & Director, Blink and Bar Annabelle, Board Director, Restaurants Canada 

Come early to the event as J-Webb Wine Merchants will be serving up some wine samples from 5:00 pm - 5:30 pm. 

Join us at the Calgary Farmers' Market for our next Fast-Growth Champions and hear the struggles and successes from some of Calgary's leading chef's and foodies.
