What People Say


"It's local and some of my vendors are local as well. It allows me to meet with
them and talk old business as well as new. It is neutral territory. I can see a lot of my vendors in the same day without having to schedule a multitude of appointments."

Jamal Gathers, Be Our Guest, Inc

"The entire show was great. It's always good to see what is out there and be able to see and touch it, rather than the everyday online ordering and phone calls, etc. This show keeps the creative juices flowing and always gives me great options to be more creative with my operation."

Matthew Camp, Unidine Corporation

"Very well run and organized show, a lot of quality leads, and traffic flow of customers throughout the show each day was consistent."

Jim Leary, BriCins Inc

"This show gives us direct access to top qualified buyers, managers, and chefs in the New England area, as well as people who travel nationally and internationally to this show. It expands our business beyond our local area of New Jersey/New York, and we are successful there every year."

Meghan Dunleavy, Gunter Wilhelm Cutlery
