We kick off our new quarterly 
publishing format with a bang!
...this is a very special one time only offer!
For the price of one Spring NRA Buyer's Guide insertion you will receive placement in 3 additional quarterly issues of Food Fair Magazine in 2020. That's 4 issues for the price of one. Obviously this 
is a kick-of FIRE Sale and as such as restrictions.
This will expire at end of business March 20, 2020, which is the ad 
closing date of Food Fair Magazine NRA Show Issue. This offer will not repeat at any time.
(however, it is possible to renew this program at the NRA show with us for 2021 at the same rate.)
Hello and thanks in advance for your time!
What we do:
Food Fair magazine publishes quarterly with one issue print/digital and three as straight digital.
We originally surfaced as a b2b trade show daily publisher at the Ntl. Restaurant Association Show in Chicago in 2005 under the banner of Foodservice Daily News. Since then the name has changed, as has the content, having been expanded in both editorial and multimedia delivery. 
This year please join us for our launch of AllFood
2021 will see a big move in the social media space with Instagram and YouTube with the channels called: food_imaginings.  
The audience across all platforms comprises restaurant owners, managers, chain store buyers, and chefs in all specialties. 
The content extends from management practices, wireless kitchens, the front room, the latest innovations in products and services, and restaurateur and chef interviews.  
Our Spring NRA Show Issue is our Buyer's Guide issue which is almost exclusively devoted to editorializing the show. For this we produce a special print mailing to 5,000 foodservice operators registered for the show. The email list for this issue is expanded as well to include 25,000 additional digital recipients. 
The media kit has been simplified to reflect only the 4 most popular programs. We have kept the prices low despite the added marketing in the quarterly digital issues which is new for 2020. We feel it is simple and more effective at the end of the day to run a single bundled package as is offered in the programs below. 
Simply put, we are what we do and we take pride in our work. Our goal is to creatively collaborate with you to help you grow your business. We want to be a part of that growth process. Your success is our success.
