Are you a food or beverage company executive or owner, or a FaB Sponsor? If yes, you qualified to attend FaB’s invite-only briefing featuring Andy Lansing, President and CEO of Levy, and Peter Feigin, President of the Milwaukee Bucks.

Seats at this premier industry luncheon were set at the Panorama Club of the Fiserv Forum. This FaB CEO Briefing was made possible by our host, Giacomo Fallucca, Chairman & CEO of Palermo’s Pizza (and member of the Bucks ownership team), along with FaB Wisconsin.

At Super Bowl 53, Levy served more than 70,000 hungry fans. Right here at Milwaukee’s Fiserv Forum, Levy serves nearly 18,000 Bucks fans each game, alongside our hometown faves like Klement’s, Miller, and Lakefront Brewery, with many more of our fine Wisconsin-made products used as ingredients and inspiration by Levy's expert culinary team. Attendees learned how they make it all happen while maintaining their innovative edge.
