Lunch & Learn Workshop Series
Barbara Abbott, president of Canton Food Tours, will present "Canton Food Tours: An entrepreneur's experience."
Canton Food Tours began when entrepreneur Barbara Abbott discovered the appealing and simple concept of a "food tour" when she took a tour in Scottsdale, AZ in 2010.
From that chance experience, Abbott spent the next two years planning and developing Canton Food Tours, which launched in May, 2012. Regularly scheduled tours and themed events highlight the unique eateries, amazing artists, and rich history of Canton and the surrounding region.
Since then, Abbott has expanded business into Wayne County and beyond. Canton Food Tours, now in its fourth season, has grown and diversified every year.
At this Lunch & Learn event, Abbott will talk about the rise of culinary tourism (across the U.S. and in Ohio), what it took to develop Canton Food Tours, and the power of business-to-business relationships. Following the presentation, there will be a brief question and answer session.
Remember to bring your lunch and your favorite beverage. There is no cost to attend this event.
