Food Integration Lab

The NEW Food Integration Lab, sponsored by  Fresh Cup Magazine, Nuova Simonelli & Design & Layout Services, is a three hour workshop designed to educate attendees about what it takes to successfully add a culinary program to their coffee shop. Each three hour workshop will explore what it takes to be successful, as well as a what many people wish they had known before getting started.

Do you want to increase your sales by incorporating food items into your current beverage menu? Do you want to learn how to compete with the national chains by serving easy to prepare, high margin food items that will keep your customers coming back for breakfast, lunch and dinner?
