For the past two years, DoorDash created a virtual forum where merchant partners were able to glean valuable operator insights from industry experts at the Main Street Strong Restaurant Conference. One of the key pieces of attendee feedback from across the years is that connecting face-to-face with other operators would be invaluable, as sharing insights with one another from personal experience is crucial to both on- and off-premise success.
To continue evolving alongside the industry, we’re proud to unveil The Main Street Summit: Los Angeles as the next iteration of the annual Main Street Strong Restaurant Conference. Hosting our first-ever in-person event in Los Angeles is an extension of our mission – as we hope that coming together in one of the most culturally-rich cities in the United States will empower restaurant owners and operators from a variety of backgrounds to come together and share their personal stories.
Hosted at the Capitol Milling Building (1231 N Spring St, Los Angeles, CA 90012), the one-day event on Monday, November 7 from 9:00am – 5:00pm PT is dedicated to fostering community, supporting restaurants in navigating today’s evolving business landscape, and ensuring operators have access to necessary resources to succeed online. All merchants in the United States are invited to attend, regardless of their partnership status with DoorDash or Caviar, while the programming will be tailored to the unique challenges that Los Angeles owners and operators face. There is no cost to attend (space is limited) and registration for the event is now open.
At the Main Street Summit, attendees can expect a customizable experience where they will hear from industry experts, connect with DoorDash support experts about their business, and have the opportunity to connect with fellow entrepreneurs. Each business has its own unique needs, which is reflected in the Main Street Summit’s programming with four distinct areas including:
