The National Restaurant Association Show 2022

Choco is heading off to the most-awaited trade show for food service professionals


On May 21st - 24th, the National Restaurant Association Show will reopen its doors to the foodservice industry professionals after a two year break – and for the very first time, Choco will be on-site to showcase the new digital solution for restaurants and suppliers looking to streamline their order management.

Where to find us

The event will take place at McCormick Place, Chicago. You’ll find us at booth #7607 in the North Building, close to the National Restaurant Association pavilion.

Tip: you can add Choco to your show-planner and reserve your spot to meet our team through the online event portal or the official Show To Go app. To do so, you’ll need to register with your business card or tax ID number. A regular entry ticket for attendees costs $139 vs. $525 for non-exhibiting suppliers, while members of the National Restaurant Association are entitled to receive a complimentary badge for free entry.


What you'll find

The Choco booth will offer an immersive experience to familiarize yourself with our brand and tools, with two dedicated areas and specialist teams: one for chefs, restaurant owners, and managers, and one for sales reps, wholesalers, and suppliers. We’ll give you an introduction to digital ordering and supplying – and a chance to finally say goodbye to your pen-and-paper!
