"We're going to see a massive transformation in retail stores whether it's new, less traditional space like Pop Up Grocer or airports revamping or retailers like Lululemon offering meditation rooms and cafes. It's the big game changer right now." —Natalie Shmulik of food incubator The Hatchery Chicago on upcoming retail trends "Fast-fine is a niche of the fast-casual space that brings in the service standards of a full-service restaurant but still gives you flexibility. We bring together quality, consistency, and value with approachability so we look, feel, and act like a full-service restaurant but at a price point that allows you to eat there several days a week." —Charles Bililies, owner of Souvla, a San Francisco-based six-location Greek restaurant chain, on the fast-fine dining trend "There will be a lot going on in food-based diet and nutrition around [individuals'] DNA—super personalization. Right now, it's a buzzword and few are doing it yet but it's starting to come based on technology." —Courtney Reum, M13, on the next health and wellness-focused trend "Our fastest growing segment is retail, whether it's a traditional restaurant with a grab-and- go line or an ecommerce player doing direct- to-consumer subscription delivery. Grocery is also a pretty quickly growing segment." —Megan Mokri, Byte Technology, on small-footprint, unattended kiosks that sell foods and beverages everywhere from workplaces to hotels to airports At each Fancy Food Show, the Specialty Food Association hosts talk show-style interviews with industry trailblazers, icons, disruptors, and other experts on the Specialty Food News Live platform.
