Hot Topics and Trends in the Texas Food and Beverage Industry

1h 30m

Created on July 24, 2017




The restaurant industry is growing at a pace unseen in recent memory. Gone are the days when being a cook was looked down on as a job for the unemployable. Instead, culinary school enrollment is at an all-time high, some chefs have reached celebrity status (some more well-known than the most famous sports heroes), and investing in restaurants is no longer seen as a down-the-drain proposition. With this change to the industry, however, have come additional legal and regulatory challenges. This course will explore some of those challenges, and work to provide a roadmap to meeting them.  

Join David Denney, founder of the Denney Law Group, to examine some of the most pressing legal issues currently facing restaurants and bars. David's firm represents startups and growing businesses, with a particular focus on the food and beverage industry. David is a Director and Executive Committee Member of the Greater Dallas Restaurant Association, an adjunct professor at the Culinary School at the Art Institute of Dallas, and a frequent author and speaker on food and beverage law in Texas and across the nation.
