Thank You For Attending the 2024 NICA Business Expo & Fare Foods Food Show
At the 2024 NICA Business Expo and Fare Foods Food Show, we were proud to celebrate the theme of "Tomorrow Starts Today!"
The week kicked off with the Annual General Membership Meeting, which included the Passing of the Gavel, Board Installation, Coca-Cola Membership Contest Winners, NICA Year in Review, and CCE Awards Presentation. Our Legacy Dinner and Celebration closed out the evening with a Cocktail Reception, Dinner, Industry Speakers, NICA Foundation Spotlight, Hall of Fame, and Winner's Hour Activities.
Throughout the NICA Business Expo, Educational Workshops were presented on a variety of subjects by Industry Professionals including:
- Blue Ribbon Guest Service
- The Next Generation
- Reducing Chargebacks
- Safety and Security
We were also proud to feature our signature Heartsaver CPR and ServSafe Food Manager Classes and Roundtable Discussions on topics such as Hours / Days of Operation, Internet Infrastructure, Multi-Year Agreements, and Weather Protocols. In addition, the Fare Foods Food Show showcased over 50 Exhibitors who specialized in Food, Insurance, Manufacturing, Supplies, Technology, and more.
