Want a bite at what the experts' at the expo have in the fridge for us? Well, look no further than our very own Mr. Jorge Pacheco! Jorge will be sharing his own experiences and knowledge to discuss one of the most important topics involved in successfully running a restaurant business: the menu!

Mr. Jorge studied architecture but moved to a career in graphic design where he found his true calling. He opened a marketing design studio with his life partner in 2005 and began collaborating with entities of the restaurant industry like Fuzio Bistro, Las Brisas and Jimmy's Famous American Tavern where he assisted them with marketing efforts not only from just menus but also with email, social media and in-store collaterals as well!

In his talk he will discuss ten strategies that are shared amongst most kinds of menus, from traditional menus to menu boards and wine lists; all in the pursuit of generating more revenue for your businesses. Sweet!

This will all boil down to menu engineering, which deals in the study of menu profitability and menu item performance: He will also explain the ingredients of menu engineering which consists of costing your menu, grouping and categorizing of menu items.

He will then go on to serve you some examples of common but costly mistakes that can throw your menu off the tables! Finally he will end up with showing you how to avoid these mistakes and cook your menu the right way! 

Remember: his talk will be on the first day (August 28th) at 1pm!

Be sure to attend the expo and support us! We will also be recording the event live on our Facebook page and also through Periscope! Have any questions and hungry for answers? Order at the comments below!
