ABOUT THE SUMMIT
Many of the fastest growing and most successful chains in the restaurant industry are embracing innovation throughout their operations. These forward-thinking brands are constantly looking for the next innovation — new technologies, new menu items, new marketing tactics, new training programs, etc. — that will propel them to even greater heights.
At the Restaurant Franchising & Innovation Summit, executives from leading brands will share their success stories of the numerous ways they have innovated to grow their franchises. Attendees will gain insight and inspiration to help them be more progressive in every facet of their businesses.

Powering franchise growth through technology and leadership
We are excited to bring the Restaurant Franchising & Innovation Summit to our home city — Louisville, Kentucky.
Not only is Louisville home to restaurant industry giants like YUM! Brands and Papa John’s Pizza, it also boasts a strong and growing foodie scene. We expect many of these independent restaurant operators will welcome the opportunity to attend the Summit in their own backyard.
