Performance in Tabletop Awards: 2017 Call for Submissions

Foodservice operators, dealers, manufacturers and reps are invited to submit entries to FE&S' 2017 Performance in Tabletop Awards.

The awards recognize excellence in the strategic and functional application of permanent tableware in the following five categories:

  • Restaurant with Per Person Check Average More Than $30
  • Restaurant with Per Person Check Average Less Than $30
  • Catering/Banquet Facility
  • On-Site Foodservice
  • Club/Resort 

Important notes about this year's competition: 

  • The competition recognizes a tabletop installation, meaning the way all the products work together. This is not a competition that recognizes individual tabletop items.
  • Installations must fit into one of the five categories and must have been completed after Dec. 1, 2015.
  • Judges may choose to disqualify entries if they do not feel they have enough information.
  • Deadline to submit is January 16, 2017.
  • All entries should consist of a single .pdf that includes a complete list of the following items used in the tabletop installation:
    • Chinaware
    • Flatware
    • Glassware
    • Accessories
  • The list should include manufacturer's name, the product name and item size (when appropriate) for each.

To be eligible for judging all entries must include each of the following:

  • Up to 10 photos of the tabletop, including a couple of food shots
  • A sample menu
  • Complete list of those people who helped assemble the tabletop (can include manufacturers, dealers, foodservice operator staff, etc.)
  • Description of the operation: How old it is, service type, menu and target audience and any other relevant information.

Outline the goals and objectives of this particular tabletop: What type of impression were you trying to make on the customers and how does the tabletop support the menu?

Submit your entry in a single pdf online.

FE&S will profile the winners in its March 2017 issue.
