After reviewing nominations, judges may choose to conduct phone interviews with a short list of semi-finalists. Judges will then choose the brand that they think has placed continuous focus on protecting its customers from food safety issues and is working to achieve food safety excellence throughout its organization.
The FastCasual editorial board and Steritech will announce the winner during the Top 100 Movers & Shakers awards banquet in Chicago in May 2021.
Entries will be accepted until midnight ET on Feb. 28, 2023.
“Details are important,” Cansler said. “Judges love to read about specific ways brands are putting emphasis on food safety.”
