Calling Industry Heroes!

HT takes a look back at the momentous change in the restaurant technology industry over the 2+ years to recognize Industry Heroes.

When restaurants were forced to shut down dining rooms as the pandemic spread, members of the restaurant technology supplier community stepped forward with aid for the hospitality industry via no-cost access to their solutions. Restaurants stepped forward to help their communities.  And technology has played a starring role.  

With these awards, HT recognizes companies -- both restaurants and tech providers --  for their exemplary contributions to the restaurant industry and/or the communities served.


Industry Heroes Nominations: Self nominations by restaurants or solution providers are encouraged. Additionally, restaurants can nominate solution providers and solution providers can nominate restaurants.

Tech suppliers – tell us how you helped the restaurant industry in distress.  (Free or waived fees, creative solutions, implementation services; tech solutions for workforce communication, contactless service models etc.)   Restaurants  – tell us your story – how you helped your community - including but not limited to your workforce, your neighbors, front-line workers, etc., and the technology you used to power these efforts.
Submit your Industry Heroes nominations here.  The form takes about 15 minutes to complete.
