Have robust industry experience and want to be a thought leader?
Are you a chef, master mixologist, operator, or restaurant consultant? A coffee connoisseur, marketing expert, or culinary/beverage director? We are always looking for the industry’s best to contribute ongoing articles to the Foodable Network.
Our industry experts are thought leaders in their categories and perfectly pair with our B2B trade media platform. With an audience of more than 26 million restaurant professionals, industry decision-makers, and food enthusiasts, we understand the insatiable need for amazing content that captures the rawness of the real restaurant business (not the kind that you see on reality television or read in fluffy consumer magazines).
Industry experts must, of course, have valid credentials and robust experience in the restaurant industry. Experts are responsible for writing two articles per month (800-1,000 words each) on topics of expertise that provide takeaways for industry professionals.
