There was a  cornucopia of noteworthy things to see and hear at Reinhart’s Fall Concept Show at Canterbury Park Expo Center, but one that resonated with attendees was motivational speaker, Tim Kirkland’s contention that he was there to help “people make more money.”

Any wonder why people lined up to get an autographed copy of his latest book, “Coach: Being A Better Team Leader by Bettering the Team You Lead,” compliments of Reinhart Foodservice?

During his 30+ years in the hospitality industry, Kirkland has led training, operations and marketing departments for numerous restaurant brands, been an award-winning operator and successful entrepreneur.

His morning session kicked off the Reinhart show and motivated operators as they walked the aisles to check out what was new and also ideas on how to fashion fall menus with new twists on old favorites.

The keywords for the event were: trends, solutions, new items, new equipment, concepts and innovation.
