What is everyone saying about Concrete Chefs?

"The gathering and the relaxed atmosphere with great food and drinks," Keith Wallis, Prestressed Casting

"It’s an awesome way to come together and support the foundation and it’s a great way to support the industry,” Ray Clark, US Formliner.

"It’s neat to see everybody you know in the same place. You see them in and out of committee meetings and in the hallways in the hotel but this is the one place we get to see everyone at the same place.” (Joey Rowland, Walker Parking)

"The best part of Concrete Chefs is the fellowship. It’s the networking. All of the friendship from this industry. I really appreciate that Jim and Chuck and the whole team cook and work all day putting this together. Concrete Chefs is THE precast concrete industry event of the year and its done for the Foundation,” Ken Kruse, BASF.
