Food On Demand Outstanding Operators is a new annual program recognizing restaurant brands with innovative operations that are taking creative paths to success with delivery and all things off-premises.

After poring over a wide batch of nominated restaurants, our editorial team selected 20 brands/operators ranging from independents to mid-market and large chains for this first-ever industry award.

Outstanding Operators is intended to help others learn, by profiling the diverse list and their successful operations in feature articles running now through May. Winners will receive a $1000 charitable donation to the organization of choice, as well as be invited to the upcoming Food On Demand Conference May 8-10 at The Bellagio in Las Vegas for on-stage recognition.

Winners in the independent category: Saigon Sisters, Handcraft Burgers & Brew, Mamma Ramona’s, ClusterTruck, Oomi Digital Kitchen, PLNT Burger and The Smoke Shop BBQ.

Mid-market: Blaze Pizza, Another Broken Egg Cafe, Costa Vida, Amici’s East Coast Pizzeria and Dog Haus.

Large: Chipotle, Sweetgreen, Salad and Go, Wow Bao, Papa John’s, Chick-fil-A, Focus Brands and Craveworthy Brands.
