The Avocado Show

The Avocado Show is one of the most exciting food start-ups in the world right now. Two friends spontaneously founded the first avocado franchise on the planet and then turned a tiny 45-seat restaurant in Amsterdam into a global brand within a year. Opening 6 stores from Brussels to Madrid with another 6 locations to be launched this year including London and Paris and more than 20 to follow in the years to come. Their concept went viral from the very first minute it was announced and with 150k fans online and a multi million dollar investment by Shawn Harris, the Bill Gates of avocados herself, this story is one for the books and for the stages. Was it the fans camping outside the door before the opening? The international franchise requests that came in before they even served a single plate? The 212 million interactions online in over 60 countries, in just a few weeks with no budget? The way they embraced sustainability for a green future with their supplier? Or simply the amazing content of their Pretty Healthy Food® dishes? Who knows. But watch, laugh and learn as Ron Simpson tells you how they are steering your favorite fruit into the future.
