trade show

International Pizza Expo is the Largest Gathering of Pizza Professionals

The International Pizza Expo dubs itself The Largest Pizza Show in the World.

It’s the place to be for pizza professionals.

For good reason.

Now in its 34th year, the trade show features more than 7,000 attendees and 500 exhibitors.

On March 19-22, they’ll all descend on the Las Vegas Convention Center in Nevada. We are excited to announce that, for the first time, Burkett Restaurant Equipment & Supplies will be among the exhibitors.

At Burkett, we know pizza. From independent restaurants to regional and national chains, pizza is the No. 1 business type we serve. If you’re at the Expo, stop by Booth #2104 and we’ll tell you why. Or ask places like Marco’s Pizza, Pizza Fire, and Master Pizza, owned by U.S. Pizza Team Captain Michael LaMarca, and they too can tell you why they’ve chosen to make Burkett their one-stop shop for all their pizza equipment and supply needs.

With an estimated $43 billion in annual sales, it’s easy to see why the pizza restaurant industry is popular right now. With the help of our veteran team of business development experts, we can help you with everything from concept to build to completion and beyond.

We are looking forward to 90 keynote addresses to choose from, the seminars, and watching the International Pizza Challenge — with Pizza Maker of the Year finals — and the World Pizza Games.

This is our first time at the expo but from what we are told carbs and calories will not be counted.

We also look forward to reconnecting with old customers and meeting new ones. Schedule an appointment with us at the Expo via this link or call Burkett Business Development Manager Travis Lusky at 419-720-8194.

Burkett Joining Midwest’s Best at 2018 Mid-America Restaurant Expo

ExhibitingThe Ohio Restaurant Association’s Mid-America Restaurant Expo aims to innovate, inform, inspire.

We are very excited for this year’s expo, and not just because that theme is also central to Burkett and our 40 years among the leading distributors of restaurant equipment and supplies.

We are excited to hear the keynote speaker, Cleveland’s own Iron Chef Michael Symon.

We are excited to see old friends and make new ones as they visit our booth, No. 721, inside the Greater Columbus Convention Center, 400 North High Street, Columbus, OH 43215.

We are excited to watch the classic Pizza Pizzazz Competition and the all new Expo Burger Battle.

We are excited to be among the 4,000 in attendance discussing the latest trends and topics and the foodservice industry.

We are especially excited to talk to independent restaurant operators and regional chains, whether start-ups or longtime staples, hear their stories, and see what solutions we can offer moving forward.

From the local mom and pop shops, to food trucks, to major franchises, we’ve always thought of every customer as a partner in business. It was our philosophy from the day we first opened our doors and it still holds true today. We take pride in the products we sell, the service we provide, and contributing to the success of every type of business we serve.

2017 was a year of great strides and improvements for Burkett and we are ready to hit the ground running in 2018. That all starts on Jan. 28-29 in Columbus, Ohio. Expos are a time where both businesses and customers can break away from the day to day operations and really focus on themselves, their wants and needs, and get focused on meeting and exceeding goals and ambitions.

It’s that time of year again, and we couldn’t be more excited for this year’s Mid-America Restaurant Expo! Check out the full schedule of events here and check out video highlights from the 2017 Expo below.
