That’s why we created these awards—to acknowledge and reward those who are advancing Canada’s hospitality sector and shaping the future of the industry,” says Phelps. “SilverChef has supported over 30,000 hospitality owners globally and I am looking forward to seeing the award entries that will highlight the fantastic success from some of Canada’s most innovative and brightest entrepreneurs,” Phelps continued.
There are four awards available under the following categories:
Hospitality operators who give back either through charitable giving or hiring practices that impact their local communities.
Entrepreneur of the Year:
New businesses that have introduced something exciting, either with technology or service offering. This award recognizes the obstacles faced by hospitality entrepreneurs, and highlights the winner’s achievements in their first year of business.
Establishments that have made the largest leap forward in terms of sustainability or environmental conservation (e.g. food waste management).
The awards judging committee is comprised of industry peers, veterans, and mentors including President and CEO of Restaurants Canada, Shanna Munro and MENU Magazine’s managing editor Stacey Newman.
Winners will be announced at an awards ceremony at the RC Show 2020 on March 3rd, 2020, in Toronto. All finalists will receive complimentary admission to RC Show 2020, but will not need to be present or exhibiting at the show to qualify or win.
