Women + diversity = better business

As Women’s History Month continues, we’re celebrating females in foodservice and the contributions they’ve made to make our businesses better.

Recently, Gerry Fernandez, founder and president of the Multicultural Foodservice & Hospitality Alliance, talked about the power of women in the restaurant industry. Whether they serve on the front lines, back of the house or in the executive suite, women are making a difference, he says.

Watch our video and see if you agree.

We partnered with the MFHA in 2016 to put more focus on diversity in the workplace. We know the significance it holds in driving better business outcomes for our industry.
