MEREDA’s Morning Menu – How Restaurants are Navigating the Current Real Estate Market

Join us on March 28th as MEREDA speaks with 3 local restaurant entrepreneurs, Amy Meader (owner of Rivalries), Chris Gould (owner of Central Provisions and Tipo) and Mike Fraser (owner of Paper Tiger, Bramhall Pub, Nosh Kitchen and Bar, Roma Cafe, Congress Street Bar & Grill (CBG),  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 effect of covid, labor shortage and other economic drivers. You will receive firsthand insight on where restaurant owners see their futures going in Greater Portland and potentially beyond!

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