Carin Stutz, the CEO and president of Native Foods, will be the guest on this month’s DrinkedIn Live, the ongoing series of conversations hosted by Ron Ruggless, Nation’s Restaurant News senior editor, on LinkedIn Live.
Participants are invited to join the conversation during each free DrinkedIn Live, which includes a beverage recipe. This month’s event starts at 5 p.m. EDT Wednesday, July 27, on the LinkedIn platform and the summertime drink feature will be an Aperol Spritz.
DrinkedIn participants can access the event here.
Stutz has served as CEO and president of the plant-based Native Foods brand since October 2019, after leading a number of casual-dining, fast-casual and quick-service brands.
She also is a past chair of the Women’s Foodservice Forum.
Native Foods was founded in 1994 in Palm Springs, Calif., and is now based in Chicago. The brand, which has a dozen locations, was acquired by Millstone Capital Advisors in 2018.
Last year, Native Foods launched a redesign of its logo and interiors to better reflect its focus on freshness.
