Mike Wigell, founder of the original Food Service Economic Summit (FSES) founded in 1994, had a vision that food industry leaders could actually get together and solve problems rather than just hear about them. The Food Service Economic Summit was renamed FaBLE: Food and Beverage Leadership Exchange in 2011.
“The industry is full of events where you go, hear the problems, and then leave without any real discussion of how to solve them” was a familiar line from Mike as he built the conference early on. Mike believed that if you brought a group of people together, kept it small, and had representation from all links in the supply chain, honest dialogue and information sharing could result from such a setting. Though Mike Wigell passed away in 1999, his legacy and vision lives on through this one of a kind event.
