    • The Chicago Food Stop, 875 N. Michigan Avenue

    It’s officially Springtime in Chicago (even if the weather disagrees). Get ready to build your networks, meet new people, and grow your business by joining us for our first networking event of the year.  Grab a drink and an appetizer, meet new industry contacts, and grow your business with CFBN -- the premier food & beverage industry organization in the region -- and our partners at World Business Chicago.

    While you’re networking, you can take a look around at The Chicago Food Stop.  This incredible and fun location showcases Chicago’s leadership in food innovation by highlighting the businesses and people the center for food in our nation.  The pop-up features four kiosks with retail offerings from Chicago-based food vendors, two photo-ready installations, a theater area, and a special exhibit from the Chicago History Museum.  We hope you learn more about why Chicagoans love their food and how the future of food is in Chicago.
