Area entrepreneurs offer fresh perspective on food, beverage industry

Local foodpreneurs will share how they cater to the preferences of today’s discerning consumer at The Dish, a new event sponsored by the Arkansas Small Business and Technology Development Center.

Three metro-area business owners will “dish” about how to survive and thrive in the food-and-beverage industry on Feb. 15 from 2 to 3:30 p.m. at The Joint in North Little Rock, 301 Main St.

Speakers include:

  • Amy Moorehead, Nexus Coffee & Creative
  • Jack Sundell, The Root Cafe
  • Collin McReynolds, Crave Fuel

A question-and-answer session will follow their talks.

The event is free to attend, but pre-registration is required. Register online at or call the center at (501) 683-7700.

The Dish is the first of a series of events the center will hold in central Arkansas for current and prospective owners of food-related businesses. For more information, contact Shannon Roberts at
