Speaker Profile

Ron Simpson

Founder, The Avocado Show

The Avocado Show is one of the most exciting food start-ups in the world right now. Two friends accidentally founded the first avocado franchise on the planet and then turned a tiny 45-seat restaurant in Amsterdam into a global lifestyle brand within a year. Their concept went viral like a celebrity sextape and with 100k fans online and a multi million dollar investment by the Bill Gates of avocados herself, this story is one for the books and for the stages. Was it the fans camping outside the door before the opening? The international franchise requests that came in before they even served a single plate? The 212 million interactions online in over 60 countries, in just a few weeks with no budget? The way they married sustainability with their supplier? Or simply the amazing content of their Pretty Healthy Food® dishes? Who knows. But watch, laugh and learn as Ron Simpson tells you how they are steering your favorite fruit into the future.
