Powerhouses “ALIGN”! Area 15 Ventures, Port of Subs, and Daddy’s Chicken Shack Unite!
Area 15 Ventures, Port of Subs, and Daddy’s Chicken Shack unite to mingle, strategize and shape the bright future ahead!
As they are exponentially increasing in popularity, hidden gems in the quick service restaurant industry Port of Subs and Daddy’s Chicken Shack wish to not remain a secret any longer, as they eagerly seek to expand their brands to the national and global markets. In a serious effort to make this a reality, Area 15 Ventures hosted the 1st annual ALIGN conference in Denver, Colorado, meant to strategize and plan for the brands’ big moves ahead.
A who’s who of attendees and hosts were brought together by the ALIGN conference, including Area 15 Ventures Chairman and RE/MAX Founder Dave Liniger, Area 15 Ventures Partner and Port of Subs CEO Adam Contos, and Area 15 Ventures Partner and Daddy’s Chicken Shack President Dave Liniger Jr. leading corporate members from each enterprise, top performing franchise store owners, and regional developers who are set to rapidly expand each brand in the near future.
While ALIGN clearly set the path forward for each brand, it also served up inspiration with motivational speeches, success stories, and acknowledgements of achieved success. The week at ALIGN was intense, however, with such hard work and focus during the opening, general and breakout sessions of the conference, balance was offered by the gracious hosts at Area 15, and enjoyable experiences were had by all attendees. Notably, a warm red-carpet style opening-night reception, a gathering at the stunning palatial estate of Dave and Gail Liniger, golf outings at the private golf course “Sanctuary,” owned by the Linigers, exquisite food and tasty drinks throughout the entire week, and for a perfect conclusion to a perfect conference event, an intimate private concert performed by American Idol stand-out, the charismatic “HunterGirl”.
All involved learned so much thanks to the ALIGN conference, and left filled with optimism, inspiration, and the preparedness needed to reach exciting new goals. We here at Port of Subs cannot wait to look back at how far we have come in a year, when the next ALIGN conference reunites us all in 2024!
