Lone Star State's Finest on Display at the Texas Restaurant Association's Southwest Foodservice Expo

Today, I had the opportunity to visit the Texas Restaurant Association’s Southwest Foodservice Expo and interact with some of the best restaurants and suppliers in Texas.

The expo is a great place for GO TEXAN members to demonstrate their products , and I also had the opportunity to promote the GO TEXAN Restaurant Round-Up and the benefits of GO TEXAN membership. I conveyed to the restaurateurs our message for promoting GO TEXAN restaurants: Go Out, Go Eat, GO TEXAN.

In 2008, the Texas restaurant industry produced direct sales of $34 billion and employed 1,016,300 Texans. The restaurant industry is a key component in promoting Texas as a destination and tourism state, and we thank these entrepreneurs for
their investment in the Lone Star State.

I even had the chance to chat with Dallas Cowboys football legend Herschel Walker. Herschel still lives in Dallas, started his own company and sure seems like the nice guy I always thought he is.
