Convenience Store News presented the 2020 Convenience Foodservice Exchange (CFX), a two-day virtual meeting where c-store foodservice operators and supplier partners collaborated to develop the blueprint for success in foodservice in a post COVID-19 world.
This year's online version of CSNews’ annual summit for exploring food trends, operations, food safety and technology kicked off Nov. 17 with a series of quick-hitting, 30-minute education sessions presented by Jessica Williams of Food Forward Thinking Inc. and Frank White of WhiteKnight Marketing; as well as a session from the Culinary Institute of America’s leading consultant on food safety. Small-group breakout sessions on prepared foods, dispensed beverages, design and operations, and technology were also held.
Day two of the event, on Nov. 18, featured an education session from Kay Segel, president of Business Accelerator Team; a fireside chat with Courtney Williams, a former Sheetz Inc. and Family Express Corp. foodservice executive; as well as more interactive small-group breakout sessions and a retailer panel featuring foodservice category leaders from three food-forward c-store chains.
In addition to the educational program, this year’s CFX was capped off each day with the presentation of the 2020 CSNews Foodservice Innovators Awards.
