Nominations have continued to flood in as Foodservice Equipment Journal calls on you to nominate your kitchen stars of the year after officially opening the nomination process for the 2018 FEJ Power List.
Now in its fourth year, the FEJ Power List serves as a definitive guide to 40 high-flying end-user individuals responsible for specifying, purchasing and shaping the commercial kitchens that their companies operate.
From culinary directors and group executive chefs to operations managers and heads of food development, the Power List celebrates the people and organisations that regard their kitchens as the heartbeat of their operations.
Whether it’s casual dining restaurants, pub groups, hotels, fast food chains or contract caterers, we want you to tell us which individuals and operators deserve to be honoured for their commitment and investment in kitchen best practice and innovation.
Last year’s Power List contained profiles of key management figures and catering equipment buyers from chains such as Pizza Express, Mitchells & Butlers, Whitbread, Greene King and The Restaurant Group – and this year we are looking for a different 40 faces to light up the list.
Further to that, this year’s Power List stars will feature in a not-to-be-missed, bumper edition of the October issue of FEJ.
FEJ editor, Andrew Seymour, said: “Our annual Power List has become a who’s who of the executives responsible for equipping and driving the kitchen operations behind the industry’s most influential and formidable multi-site operators. In these testing times for the market, the skill and judgement of individuals that know how to tap into new trends and optimise the latest equipment is crucial for driving customer loyalty, keeping staff satisfied and improving the bottom line.”
Over the past two years FEJ’s Power List has featured 130 individuals from multi-site operators that stand out for the investment they have made in new kitchens and catering projects.
And now we are calling on you to help us identify the next crop of kitchen champions that deserve recognition for their commitment to creating efficient, well-planned commercial kitchens.”
The nomination process is incredibly simple, with operators are free to nominate people from within their own organisations. Catering equipment manufacturers and distributors are also invited to nominate any end-user customers they feel deserve recognition.
Deadline for nominations is Thursday 23 August 2018.
