About the Event:  Join MEREDA on March 28th, 2024 at the McGoldrick Career & Student Success Center, 35 Bedford Street, Portland. MEREDA speaks with 2 local restaurant entrepreneurs Chris Gould (owner of Central Provisions and Tipo) and Mike Fraser (owner of Paper Tiger, Bramhall Pub, Nosh Kitchen and Bar and Nosh Taco). These restaurant moguls have been intertwined into the real estate fabric of Greater Portland for decades. They will discuss how their businesses have changed over the years, where they see the restaurant scene going and the effects of covid, labor shortage and other economic drivers. You will receive first hand insight on where restaurant owners see their futures going in Greater Portland and potentially beyond!

MEREDA Vice President, Jenn Small of Malone Commercial Brokers will moderate the program.
