A FREE Webcast:
Restaurant/Retail and Other Hybrid Spaces
Tuesday, July 19 at 1:00 PM (Central)
In this hour-long webcast, rd+d hosted a roundtable discussion on how the line between retail and restaurants has blurred. Indeed, the line between almost everything has blurred as grocery stores are filled with restaurants and bars, cafes are popping up in every kind of retail setting, c-stores are adding fast food outposts and restaurants are adding retail areas. The panel covers the trends, the challenges, and discuss their favorite hybrid mashups.
