Who Attends?

Attendance is reserved for multiunit chain and noncommercial operators with facilities, engineering and purchasing responsibilities. Sponsor attendance is limited to ensure as close to a one-to-one ratio of suppliers to operators as possible.

Why Attend?


"The editors have designed MUFES to be a meeting unlike any other for E&S purchasers. This isn't 101-level information. Our sessions and presenters focus on nuts-and-bolts content to help chains and noncommercial facilities run more efficiently, save costs and labor and optimize their kitchen operations."

—Kelly Killian, editor-in-chief and chief content officer, FER


Past topics have included advanced water filtration, the logistics of opening units overseas, energy saving case studies, smart metering and more. Check back soon for details on the 2020 MUFES agenda.

Become a Sponsor


MUFES is an intimate meeting. We aim for a one-to-one ratio of operators and sponsors to create a vibe that is comfortable and collaborative, where attendees trade insights and solutions in conversations that pop up easily during the sessions, networking breaks and social gatherings. And everyone comes away with a valuable network of contacts to follow up and connect with after the event.
