FastCasual is taking nominations for its 2018  list of Top 100 Movers & Shakers, which honors the brands and executives leading the fast casual restaurant industry, said Cherryh Cansler, director of editorial for Networld Media Group, the parent company of FastCasual.

“Our annual list recognizes brands with major growth and sales accomplishments but also honors trendsetters and brands that incorporate technology to enhance the customer experience,” Cansler said.

How it works

Brands will nominate themselves by answering a few questions about their businesses in order to help judges narrow down the list. A second set of questions will ask people to nominate the executives they believe best represent the industry. People may nominate themselves or their colleagues, Cansler said.

“The more information the judges have, the better, so I recommend that brands answer the questions thoroughly,” Cansler said.

Out of the nominations, judges will choose 75 brands and 25 industry executives to round out the Top 100.

“Last year, we had over 800 entries to review, and this year, with a variety of new brands succeeding, I expect the competition to be just as fierce,” Cansler said.

As in past years, the results will be revealed at an annual awards gala in May in Chicago during the NRA show.
