Fast Casual Industry Council

The Fast Casual Industry Council aims to bring together C-suite leaders from fast casual restaurants to discuss challenges and common concerns. The group advises the National Restaurant Association on how the industry's priority issues would affect fast casual restaurants. It also provides a forum for engagement opportunities and innovative technology.
