Listen to Chas Kaplan on NPR Columbus Ohio

Great read from The Metropeneur Columbus
Here is a little clip from The Metropeneur Article –

– This past fall, the Kaplan Artists Group was appointed to manage the new city spot reservation system. With over three years experience successfully operating Ohio State Wexner Medical Center’s mobile food rotation,, as well as co-owning The Columbus Food Truck Festival, KAG was the city’s first choice to implement the new program. They expect to build upon a model that has already proven to work seamlessly for both the customer and the vendor.

“We’re really excited to expose the greatness of what Columbus has to offer with its small business owners,” Chas Kaplan, founder of KAG, said. “Columbus has an incredible foodie scene and it’s time to introduce the variety of talented chefs to the masses.” –
