Pop Up Startups: How To Shakeup the Typical Storefront

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Pop-up shops are taking over the retail world and rethinking traditional brick-and-mortar and big-box stores, while food trucks are moving away from their bland beginnings and are gaining popularity as a trendy pop-up restaurant option.

During this panel discussion, learn from local successful business owners who have expertise in these types of businesses. They will discuss their successes and lessons learned and what you need to know to get started with your food truck or pop-up shop. You can also learn the regulations and permitting needed to be in compliance for this rapidly expanding type of business.

This event is sponsored by Pop Up Ave.
