Lake County Restaurant Expo and Restaurant Week

Sponsored by Nicole Flora

Supporting the local food service and restaurant industry is the goal of an upcoming series of events presented by the Lake County Economic Development Corporation (Lake EDC)

The Restaurant Expo is a free two-day networking and training event focused on providing expert support to new and existing owners of restaurants, food trucks and other food service businesses. The Expo will be held on January 30 at Woodland Community College and January 31 at Mendocino Community College. Both days will start at 10 a.m. Sessions will be presented in person, and via zoom. Sessions will include many aspects of running a food business including, food sourcing, menu pricing, payroll and human re- sources, and much more.

On the evening of January 30th, at 5:30 p.m. Lake EDC will host a networking event at The Ripe Choice for participants to mingle and network with real estate professionals, lenders and other industry collaborators. The first annual Lake County Restaurant Week will span the week of February 5th
to 11th. Coordinated by the Lake County Chamber of Commerce, residents will be encouraged to try a new restaurant around the lake – restaurants from every corner of the County will participate with prix-fixe menu, small plates, or feature Lake County produce or product at a discounted price.

Tickets are not necessary for this delectable week of discounted dining, but reservations are recommended! To learn more about the Restaurant Expo and networking event, or to sign up to attend, visit or email [email protected].
