Melt Shop, Asian Box, Anthony's Pizza execs pull back the curtain on transparency trend

It's obvious that the brands that are transparent about where and how they source their food have the most loyal customers. That's easier said than done, however, considering most brands work with a variety of food vendors all over the country.

During a session at last year's Fast Casual Executive Summit, several execs spoke about what's driving the trend of increased transparency and how restaurateurs can meet customer needs without losing money.

They included:
• John LeBel, CEO, Anthony’s Pizza & Pasta.
• Linda Appel Lipsius, co-founder and CEO, Teatulia
• Josh Morgan, operating partner, Melt Shop
• Chad Newton, culinary director, Asian Box

Registration for the 2018  Fast Casual Executive Summit, Oct. 7-9 in Seattle is now open.
