LevelUp Partner Restaurants named 2017 Movers and Shakers
Last weekend, major players from the top fast casual brands gathered in Chicago to celebrate FastCasual’s top 100 Movers & Shakers. The list consisted of 76 brands and 24 executives. The list this year recognizes “growth and sales accomplishments, honors innovation in the use of technology to enhance the customer experience, and willingness to take risks in the name of brand elevation”.
Normally, the top 100 is comprised of 75 brands and 25 executives. However, this year’s judges selected 76 brands and 24 executives after finding it particularly challenging to whittle down the list.
LevelUp partner restaurants sweetgreen, &pizza, VERTS Mediterranean Grill, by CHLOE. boloco, and la Madeleine snagged spots in the top 50. Cowboy Chicken, Fresh To Order, Potbelly Sandwich Shop, Pincho Factory, Pokéworks, Tropical Smoothie Cafe and Asian Box were close behind.
Michael Lastoria of &pizza, Nathaniel Ru of sweetgreen, Samantha Wasser of by CHLOE. and John Pepper of Boloco were also named top executives.
Congratulations to all of the honorees. LevelUp is proud to work with some of the very best brands and executives in the restaurant industry. Read about one of FastCasual’s 2017 Movers and Shakers, VERTS Mediterranean Grill, and the success they achieved with their app.
