On today's episode of All in the Industry®, Shari Bayer's guest is Andrew Chason, Co-Founder of FRESH MGMT, which manages the careers of some of the world’s most influential chefs and tastemakers, including José Andrés, Kristen Kish, Aarón Sánchez, Roy Choi, and Nyesha Arrington. FRESH is a full-service, boutique management company dedicated to helping its clients build lasting legacies through content, brand partnerships, live and virtual events, technology, value-add investment opportunities, and social good. A 20-year talent management and marketing veteran, Andrew was among the first to recognize that food-entertainment would have a similar impact on pop culture as film, TV, sports, and music, and that chefs could become cultural icons. Prior to launching FRESH, he was head of CAA Culinary, a division of leading entertainment and sports agency Creative Artists Agency (CAA), which focused on representing high-profile culinary personalities. Today's show also features Shari's PR tip to keep things fresh; Industry News Discussion on José Andrés' new TV series, "Jose Andres and Familly in Spain" (Discovery Inc.); Jeremy Allen White's 2023 Golden Globes win for best performance by an actor in a TV musical or comedy for "The Bear" (fx/hulu); and how restaurant workers are helping to pay for lobbying to keep their wages low via The New York Times; plus, Shari's Solo Dining experience at Daytrip, an award-winning wine bar with fermentation-driven party food in Oakland, CA.
