FastCasual.com is seeking nominations for this year's Top 100 Movers & Shakers, set to publish in April 2013.
The industry publication is seeking not only the top 50 restaurant chains, but also the top 20 people in the industry as well as the Top 10 menu innovations, the Top 10 technologies that have helped improve business operations and the Top 10 overall trends of the year.
Past winners include Smashburger, Firehouse Subs, MOOYAH Burgers, Au Bon Pain, Chipotle, Panera Bread and Raving Brands.
Now in its ninth year, the 2013 ranking will launch in time for the May 18th NRA show in Chicago.
"Last year was the first time we expanded the categories to include people, trends and innovations, and it was a huge success," said Cherryh Butler, editor of FastCasual.com. "We are excited to see who tops all those lists this time around. Also, it's not necessarily only about how many times a brand is mentioned, we also look closely at why each were nominated, so make sure you give specific feedback on the survey."
