Due' on the 40/40 List of America's Hottest Fast Casual Startups
Every year, the leading industry publication QSR Magazine releases a list of the Hottest 40 Fast Casual Startups in the United States. This year, Due' Cucina made it to the list, alongside 39 other terrific concepts. Needless to say, we are the only authentic Italian brand on the list :).
We are really excited to see that our mission to make incredibly authentic Italian pasta accessible is getting attention. Thank you to all our customers who supported us during these challenging years, and to our stellar team that made all of this possible.
Due' presenting at the 2019 Fast Casual Executive Summit
This week Davide and Filippo flew to Austin, TX to present Due' at the 2019 Fast Casual Executive Summit.
About the Fast Casual Summit:
The Summit takes place every year in a different city of the US. It's a very popular event, with hundreds of participants ranging from small restuarateurs to regional and national brands, from investors to executives, and more. Due' was selected, alongside 5 other new fast-casual concepts from all around the US, to participate in the startup showcase "The Perfect Pitch", which takes place every year on the last day of the Summit.
We had 5 minutes to present Due' to an audience of roughly 500 industry leaders. We talked about our concept, our menu, the Due' experience, and our vision for growing Due' into a multi-store concept. After the presentation, we had a 10 minutes Q&A session, where a panel of experts asked us questions and offered advice.
The response to our presentation was fantastic! We did not expect so much excitement for our concept and encouragement to pursue our growth plans. We came back to Seattle more energized than ever, and ready to hit the ground running with more projects.
Here are some extracts from our presentation:
