Seminar 1: 

Menus for Profit - Presented by Sysco Foods
Americans are now spending more money eating out than they are on groceries.  We have more members than ever serving some type of food.  If you serve food it is important to cash in on this trend and make some money.
Dustin Howard of Sysco East will conduct this seminar and talk about profitability, presentation and menu creation.  Whatís Hot?  Whatís not?  What must you do to create a menu that is both appealing and profitable?  Breaking even is not acceptable!  Make your grill, your deep fryer, your kitchen work for you.  This seminar will show you how.

Dustin Howard works as a business consultant for Sysco East.  He started as a dishwasher and line cook before graduating from the Culinary Institute of New York.  He became an Executive Chef at age 23.  As an employee, he opened four restaurants in four different states while maintaining a 15% labor cost and a 28% food cost.  Receiving many awards along the way, Dustin settled in with Sysco East and has been there since 2012.



Seminar 2: 

Department of Revenue

                    DOR Inspections: What are they looking for?

You may have already been paid a visit by Department of Revenue agents, if you havenít, get prepared for one.  The DOR is responsible for the enforcement of Chapter 125 laws.  These are the laws that govern our industry and not knowing them can directly impact your business and livelihood.
So what happens when they pay you a visit?  What are agents looking for?  What can you do to protect yourself?  DOR agents will be on hand to discuss these questions and more.  Tax audits will also be discussed, they are becoming more frequent and many of our members have had to face that terrifying ordeal.  Time will also be allowed for Q & A.  There is a lot of misinformation out there and you need to know the facts.  This seminar is for anyone in our industry.  Remember, ignorance is no excuse for violating the law!
