The Atlantic Ideas Festival – Barclays Presents: New Approaches to Bridging the Racial Wealth Gap
Join Barclays, Acumen, and Everytable to hear what it takes to create opportunity and close the racial wealth gap for both individuals and their communities. Everytable is a fast-casual restaurant bringing healthy food to food deserts across Los Angeles and beyond. Through its innovative business model, Everytable has been able to increase access to healthy food and change the culture of health in underserved communities, while drastically reducing the costs of the standard restaurant model. Now, with an eye toward closing the wealth gap in the communities it works in, Everytable has launched a social-equity franchising program, which enables people who otherwise would not have the capital, resources, or training to own and operate an Everytable franchise. Join us to hear from Everytable’s director of social-equity franchising and a new franchise owner about the potential for this model to create new avenues to build wealth in disadvantaged communities.
