Roundtable with NAYA

The NAYA on University Place was the site of a boisterous and high energy meeting as Together Hospitality NYC kicked off the Spring season in style.

Founder & Host Hady Kfoury mesmerized the nearly 40 attendees with tales of his journey from the Middle East to Europe and then the States. Taking the audience through the peaks and valleys of transitioning from fine dining chef to CEO of a 22+ location quick serve destination, Hady inspired one and all to be their best authentic selves in an ever changing world.

Next up was Attorney Adam Gross, who provided meaty counsel on the topics of New York State tip law, including a bird’s eye view of which quick serve brands do and do not practice tipping. Stay tuned for more from Adam on the most relevant topics in employment law.

This meeting’s breakout sessions were especially valuable as groups of first-in-class professionals discussed best practices for social media and branding. The moment of sharing best practices at the end left everyone with a bounty of instantly implementable strategies.

Derek Sherman then announced to those attending, Oprah style with “you get a free lunch at NAYA!” As one guest told us, “I would have come back soon anyway, but now I know I’ll be here for lunch today!”
