NYCHG is a networking group devoted exclusively to the restaurant and hospitality industry in New York City (but not limited to this market). Each member of the group has been hand selected and asked to join by one of our current members based on their tenure within this unique type of business that is unlike any other service sector in the world: hospitality.
Each member has been sought out based on their proven leadership skills among their trade and because of the reputation they have earned within their profession. This tight collection of individuals has come together to help you: the restaurateur, the owner, the investor, the consumer, or anyone else involved in this challenging community- wherever you are in the process. As a united team we have become proactive for our current clients and future prospects by staying up to date in this constantly evolving and complex industry. By understanding the challenges you face on a week to week basis, we have the ability as your service providers to understand how we can help you in any situation at any time- better than our competitors. Through each of our intimate connections we have established over the decades together assisting our current customers- we have formed an “all in one” resource to continue serving you, our clients, our families, our friends, and our future prospects better than anyone else can.
The mission of the New York City Hospitality Group is:
- To be a premier multi-level provider within the hospitality industry offering services from the inception of a new business to the expansion of existing businesses.
- Provide a forum for the sharing of opportunities for these services
- Encourage, nurture, and inspire within each member of the association the highest level of professionalism and business development
Meetings are held every other Tuesday at 7:45 at the offices of BenefitMall (1250 Broadway, 20th Floor NY, NY 10001). Guests are only allowed to attend these regularly scheduled meetings through the invitation of one of our members. Please note that anyone can attend as a guest, however only unrepresented industries in the group may apply to become a core member. Guests may attend up to three meetings before joining and are asked to pay a $10 breakfast fee.
NYCHG Requirements for Core Membership:
We have a good faith attendance policy and know that if you do not attend the bi weekly meeting regularly you not only hurt the group, you hurt your own business. We have a commitment to one another that the more we are together- the more likely we are to pass more referrals and make more introductions to one another. Thus not making the meetings mandatory- we do require that once a month you do one of the following: bring a guest, eat lunch/happy hour/dinner/coffee with another member, or pass a referral.
Networking Cocktail Events:
In addition to bi-weekly morning meetings, the NYCHG hosts quarterly networking cocktail events open to anyone in the hospitality field for additional networking opportunities. Join our mailing list to learn about our upcoming events.
The New York City Hospitality Group also takes part in other Restaurant and Hospitality conferences, tradeshows and events in New York City. If you would like us to participate or co-host an event, please contact Leigh Wilson, President of the NYCHG.
