QSR featured IRA Chairman Jim Kallas, Division President of Eurest a Division of Compass Group in a story on the success of Forum 55, the newest food court in Chicago's Loop. 

The piece highlights how Forum 55 has worked to deepens the community connection beyond showcasing local restaurants; it also acts as an incubator for woman- and minority-owned start-ups and sources directly from regional and urban growers.

“I’m a Chicago guy,” Kallas says. “I thought, what a great chance if we could get these fledgling companies into one of our cafes where they could have exposure to thousands of people throughout a week—like the best urban-market survey they could possibly get.”
