The countdown has begun for the highly anticipated 2023 Texas Restaurant Show, organized by the Texas Restaurant Association (TRA), as Houston prepares to host the prestigious event at the George R. Brown Convention Center from July 7 to 10.

With more than 5,000 food service professionals expected to attend, the show promises to be a grand celebration of culinary arts.

“Like many trade shows, there was an opportunity for restaurant operators and owners and professionals to get together and talk about industry trends, what’s going on in the market, what’s available to the market, bringing in different food products, and showing people what’s available to them and what’s coming up on the horizon,” Tony Abruscato, spokesperson for the TRA, told The Dallas Express.

“And so year after year, it’s built on that premise of the latest and greatest in the industry, best practices, education on ways to make your restaurant a better restaurant, how to become more profitable, how to have better employees and treat those employees well and so we gather each year to build on top of that,” said Abruscato.

Now in its 86th year, the Texas Restaurant Show has solidified its position as the premier restaurant industry trade show in the Southwest.

Industry enthusiasts and professionals from across the nation are expected to converge at the event, where they will have the opportunity to explore over 500 exhibitor booths showcasing cutting-edge products, state-of-the-art equipment, and the latest industry trends.

In addition to the displays, the Texas Restaurant Show will offer a series of educational seminars for attendees seeking to expand their knowledge and expertise.

Industry leaders and successful entrepreneurs will take the stage, sharing invaluable insights and advice gleaned from their firsthand experiences.

A complete lineup of panelists and speakers can be found on the show’s official website at www.txrestaurantshow.com/education.

The much-anticipated gathering of culinary minds is projected to generate over $2.5 million in revenue for local businesses, further boosting the vibrant Houston food scene.

Abruscato said that the show demonstrates restaurateurs’ desire to provide an exceptional dining experience for their customers.

“I think it’s important for the public to know that the industry is striving to be the best that it can be. It’s [about] looking for … new products and new suppliers and ways to get through the supply chain that’s so difficult. … I want them to know that restaurants are striving to provide food and experiences for people,” said Abruscato.

“Restaurants are an integral part of feeding America and feeding Texas, and we want people to know that the Texas restaurant industry is striving to be the best that it can be for consumers.”
