Blais to keynote Restaurant Innovation Summit

Celebrity chef Richard Blais will keynote the National Restaurant Association’s 2017 Restaurant Innovation Summit, Oct. 25 to 27, in Austin, Texas.

Blais is a successful chef, restaurateur, James Beard nominated cookbook author and television personality. Perhaps most recognizable as the winner of Bravo’s Top Chef All-Stars and a regular Food Network judge, he will share his thoughts on trends in the restaurant industry.

Blais, a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, is a partner in several restaurant concepts, including the Juniper & Ivy and Crack Shack restaurants. He released his second cookbook, “So Good,” last May and will debut a new television show, “Man vs Master,” on the FYI Network later this year.

RIS will bring industry leaders together to talk about the newest technology available to restaurants.

Learn how to work with technology, not against it. Register for the Summit today!
