13 leaders in onsite food service operations, selected by you

From colleges and university to contract management companies, readers have identified standout leaders in the industry who deserve recognition.

Every year, Food Management’s sister site Nation’s Restaurant News names the top leaders in the food service industry, called The Power List. This year, the list focused on leadership, highlighting those in the restaurant industry who exhibited extraordinary guidance during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and social unrest. These 50 individuals were selected to showcase the best in leadership, inclusivity and progress during arguably the most trying time in the foodservice industry.

In addition to the 50 named to the list, we ask our readers to name their leadership candidates to our Readers’ Picks program to recognize their work. This year, there were a significant number of onsite food service directors, leaders and more on the list representing colleges, K-12, business and industry and more.

Meet the leaders chosen out of the non-commercial food service segment for Readers’ Picks.
