"Fast Casual Nation: Changing the Way America Eats" Premiered in Chicago

Foodable WebTV Network reached a major milestone this past Saturday. As part of the 2015 NRA Show, Foodable unveiled its first screening of "Fast Casual Nation: Changing the Way America Eats," a full-length documentary that leads the viewer through the cinematic tale of how the fast casual segment rose to its glory.

Not only were guests treated to a cocktail reception and an intimate VIP dinner of American-comfort-food classics at the Virgin Hotel's Miss Ricky's, attendees were also privy to be the first to hear more great news: Foodable and the National Restaurant Association revealed their partnership. As of now, their two new ventures include a film festival and the Foodable 5-Star Awards, which will be taking place at the NRA's Restaurant Innovation Summit in San Diego this coming October. Can't wait to see what other exciting things this teamwork will bring to the table of the food industry!
