Avero New York City Restaurant Education Experience.
The Avero New York City Restaurant Education Experience sends one or two deserving recipients to New York City for a four-day educational immersion into the food and beverage industry. The students will meet and learn from leading chefs, managers and restaurateurs while experiencing some of the city’s most prominent dining trends. The students also spend time at the Avero headquarters, meeting with the executive team and shadowing several team members to learn how Avero’s performance management technology helps food and beverage operators improve efficiency and guest experience.
