Its Advantages

Peer Group Events

Rapid growth comes from diverse perspectives and support.  Drive Wheel membership gives you access to experienced business leader’s insights, ideas, and wisdom so you can confidently make the decisions that grow your business.

Groups consist of 12-16 members who meet twice a year for two-day intensive discussions about industry topics and member strategies.  Agendas are member-created to ensure a topical and timely discussion.  Guest speakers are invited to present new ideas, deep dive on specific topics, or illustrate a new perspective.

Drive Wheel’s experienced facilitators guide the discussions and ensure each topic is thoroughly explored,


We believe isolation is the enemy of great ideas.


Peer Group events are scheduled over two days to ensure an opportunity for networking.  Designed to inspire, our Networking Events are hosted at innovative restaurants and food service establishments to create new experiences for our members.  Members, speakers, and other industry professionals are invited to the events, which serve as an informal opportunity to meet new people, reconnect with acquaintances, and to informally continue discussions.
