“It was a great show, and I’ve told all my colleagues that we will likely end up carrying 90% of the items in the show which is an unprecedented rate of acceptance. Our company has considered this one of the best shows in the field of many contenders since its inception.” - Georgia Main Food

“The show was definitely worthwhile… We came away with numerous ideas, better educated and definitely motivated to build our local offerings in the Campuses we operate.
