/ Restaurant Franchises

This past week, at the Fast Casual Top 100 Movers & Shakers Gala at the LondonHouse in Chicago, IL, several of MenuTrinfo®’s clients were named to the Top 100 Movers and Shakers list by FastCasual.com.

Our CEO Betsy Craig, Sam Stanovich and Josh Halpern from Big Chicken and Cherryh Cansler, Senior Editor of FastCasual.com

It makes our team extremely happy that our clients are out there getting recognized for their dedication to innovation and providing a superb dining experience – especially when they’re getting recognized by others outside of our team!

This event means a lot to us as our own CEO, Betsy Craig, was named one of the Top 100 Movers and Shakers (#4 at that!) in 2012 – so we know how much of an honor this award is – and we’re thrilled to see our clients see that same notoriety.

FastCasual’s panel deliberated and settled on 75 brands and 25 executives for the full slate of the 2022 Top 100 list. According to the team, their Top 100 isn’t solely focused on the most profitable or fastest-growing brands – but also their dedication to innovation, nimbleness and creativity.
