Mornings On Main
Food for Thought: Main Street Edition

October 4, 2023

Join Missouri Main Street Connection on October 4, 2023 at 8:30am in Central Time (US and Canada) for our last installment of the Mornings on Main webinar series in 2023.

Food for Thought: Main Street Edition

Is your Main Street the place to eat and do people know that? Even if there is one, two, or ten restaurants in your Main Street district, listen to your market data and the restaurant trends to inform your Main Street on what your district needs and how to promote what you do have to capitalize on consumer preferences. Hear from Executive Director Amy Supple with Chillicothe CVB, Programming and Marketing Director Ivy Hagedorn with Downtown Joplin Alliance, and restaurant owner Daphne Bowman with Willow Springs Mercantile on their insights and practical approaches to maximize the culinary potential of your Main Street district.

Restaurant owners, community leaders, and food enthusiasts should come to this webinar to learn from people who are in the field implementing actionable steps to foster economic growth by increasing foot traffic, attract a diverse customer base by accommodating dietary restrictions, and create a vibrant culinary destination through incubating new restauranteur in their communities.


Registration is required for this free webinar. If you have any questions, please email logan@momainstreet.org or call our office at 417-334-3014.
