Each year, our editors evaluate entries for many 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, practical ideas, think-outside-the-box ideas — that allow onsite operators to manage foodservices more successfully and to better meet customer expectations.
The goal of the Best Concept Awards program is to recognize these innovations and the organizations and teams responsible for them.
