A tasty start to the week

Some Annual Convention attendees wrapped up a day of work while others kicked off their week in Las Vegas at the Taste of Franchising reception Sunday night.

Attendees mingled and had drinks while sampling tasty food and beverages provided by a variety of franchises:

  • Fannie May
  • Port of Subs
  • Golden Krust
  • Tony Roma’s
  • Nothing Bundt Cakes
  • Great American Cookies
  • Wynstone’s World Teas
  • Capriotti’s Sandwich Shop
  • Buffalo Wing Factory & Pub
  • Jersey Mike’s Subs
  • Tropical Cafe Smoothie
  • Marco’s Pizza
  • Pepsico Foodservice
  • McDonald’s
  • The Original Soup Man

I tried not to eat too much, but after one of the guys from Great American Cookies told me that “what you eat in Vegas stays in Vegas” I let my sweet tooth run a little wild.

After the reception, I met up with a smaller group of attendees at the West Wing Bar for a TweetUp. It was fun to meet some folks who read IFA SmartBrief and who were watching my tweets from the reception.

I’ll be tweeting the rest of the week, so follow me at @SBStartup.
