As part of the 2023 FastCasual Top 100 Movers & Shakers list, FastCasual and Steritech, a provider of food safety assessments, will honor one brand with the fifth annual Excellence in Food Safety Award. Two runners-up will also be honored.
The awards recognize fast casual brands demonstrating a commitment to food safety by implementing food safety programs and practices that lend to achieving excellence in food safety, according to Cherryh Cansler, editor of FastCasual.

After reviewing nominations, judges may choose to conduct phone interviews with a short list of semi-finalists. Judges will then choose the brand that they think has placed continuous focus on protecting its customers from food safety issues and is working to achieve food safety excellence throughout its organization.
The FastCasual editorial board and Steritech will announce the winner during the Top 100 Movers & Shakers awards banquet in Chicago in May 2023.
“Details are important,” Cansler said. “Judges love to read about specific ways brands are putting emphasis on food safety.”
(Only fast casual brands will be considered for nomination).
Wingstop was the winner of the 2022 Excellence in Food Safety award, and past winners have included Panda Express, Chipotle and Fazoli’s.
