Reis is on a path of executing innovative ideas and creating a spotlight for fresh concepts in food…and beyond. It all started when food (literally) landed on his lap on a recent trip to New York and his curiosity ran wild. What could be done? What hasn’t been explored? Reis is currently taking on the business development side of Food Social. When he’s not connecting vendors and expanding the Food Social experience, he’s pushing ahead with his acting career.

David is bringing his tech background and love of food to the team to help spread the Food Social message.
Ryan is a motivated individual who left his comfortable corporate career to pursue a deeper calling. After graduating college and reaching the summit of his career in corporate management, he had a revelation that there had to be more to life than just trading time for money. He decided to embark on the journey of starting up his own food truck business, starting with outdoor events and festivals and setting up shop out of a tent. After meeting other food vendors that sold at these costly events, he began to carry a heavy burden to help those trying to pursue their dreams of owning a successful food business. Ryan has now devoted his life to helping others chase their dreams and realize their full potential.
