FM's BEST CONCEPTS AWARDS competition recognizes and celebrates innovative thinking and practice in noncommercial foodservice.
Each year, our editors evaluate entries for scores of nominees before settling on the winners. The entries themselves are judged on a variety of factors ranging from their creativity to their impact on a given program and their effectiveness in achieving targeted results.
At the end of the day, the Best Concept Awards are about IDEAS — great ideas, innovative ideas, think-outside-the-box ideas — that allow onsite operators to manage foodservices more successfully and more efficiently and to better meet customer expectations.
The goal of the Best Concepts Awards program is to recognize these innovations and the organizations and teams responsible for them…
