The Beacon Award

THE BEACON AWARD

MONDAY, MARCH 9, 2019, 12:30 PM - 2:00 PM, CENTER STAGE 

We are honored and excited to announce... 
Allison Kave and Keavy Landreth as the 2020 Beacon Award recipients! 

The word Beacon symbolizes many things including a person that illuminates or inspires. 

The Beacon Award, presented on behalf of The Foodservice Council for Women and The Food and Beverage Portfolio Tradeshows, was created to recognize a woman leader(s) who has truly served as a Beacon for our industry through her leadership, contributions, and inspiration. 

Mark your calendars as these ladies are not to be missed! We look forward to honoring these incredible women in the industry! Allison Kave and Keavy Landreth will also sit as panelists on the Foodservice Council for Women. 

 

Allison Kave is a baker, bartender, business owner, and badass based in Brooklyn. She's the co-founder of Butter & Scotch, a feminist cocktail bar & bakery in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, the author of First Prize Pies and co-author of the Butter & Scotch cookbook, and a recipe developer, educator, and brand strategist. Current projects include business consulting, recipe development & testing, food writing, and creating interdisciplinary food events. 

Keavy Landreth is Co-Owner of Butter & Scotch, a bar and bakery in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. Keavy helped Butter & Scotch gain a cult following with it's infamously dense Birthday Cake and in your face feminist politics. Keavy, and her unwavering appetite to create, finds immense joy in helping her employees to realize their entrepreneurial dreams by offering both guidance and financial assistance. She is currently working on opening a bakery with her General Manager, Stephanie Gallardo. She is an avid runner, eater, laugher and strives to one day own a pair of tights without holes.
