Let’s Enjoy the Show

You’re invited to sample food, gather new ideas and explore technology solutions.

Did you know the Gordon Food Service Show is coming up? 

All the excuses not to attend are exactly the reasons you should go. If you had plans to spend the day of the Show researching menu ideas, smoothing out the inventory or addressing labor concerns, the Show has solutions. 

Each Show is intended to remind you why great food matters and why finding a way to share that joy with customers builds success. While you’re enjoying yourself, we’ll treat you to ways you can solve challenges.

It’s your chance to network

Of course you’re busy. Managing a foodservice business starts long before the kitchen help arrives and goes on even after the last meal is plated. You’ve tried everything to operate more efficiently, so why not step out of your building and hear what others are doing?

Whether it’s new, labor-saving products or labor efficiencies, the large and diverse group of professionals at the Show may have advice you can put into practice right away. 

Every booth is staffed by product representatives ready to listen to your concerns. And our seminars offer operational insights provided by Gordon Food Service subject-matter experts who have collected research and spent time working with operators facing some of the challenges you encounter.

You can try before you buy

The show floor is foodie heaven. New menu ideas await at every booth. Radical breakfast plates. Global mashup entrees. Veg-centric innovations. Artisanal beverage creations. Divine desserts. It’s all there, and you can taste-test and ask questions from every vendor.

With hundreds of recipes and concepts, what better place to research menu solutions? The show floor also features 20-minute presentations with ingredient and menu demonstrations designed to help increase your profits. Speaking of profits, you earn valuable incentives for purchasing new products at the show.

Looking for a deeper dive on food trends? Our hour-long seminars can help. Listen to what our culinary research team has seen emerging on menus in New York, Los Angeles and Chicago. Their street-level tasting tour not only reveals the next hot menu item, it helps our chefs create kitchen-tested recipes you can use to be the first to market.

Learn ways to utilize technology

High-tech tools may be just the ticket to your success. From Online Ordering to Inventory Manager to Recipe Manager and more, time- and money-saving solutions are bountiful. But do you really know which ones are right for your business? Our experts are on the show floor to answer questions, help you understand each tool’s capabilities and how it fits your needs.

Operational seminars also address challenges facing healthcare, education and restaurant operators. You can attend sessions and hear ideas on managing menu data, utilizing cycle menus and employing a mobile ordering solution address the growth of off-premise dining.

You’ll be glad you came

Every show provides time-saving tips, new product samples and helpful technology tools that can help with every part of your business--ordering, tracking inventory, training, managing labor and much more.

Attend and get the best seat in the house for investing in your business.
