The Restaurant Hospitality Power List: Reader Picks

76 founders, entrepreneurs recognized by their peers

Last month, we at Restaurant Hospitality shared the Founders & Entrepreneurs Power List — 10 restaurant leaders the editors believe worthy of honor and recognition. We also asked you, the readers, to tell us who you believe belong on the list — and you delivered.

We received well over 100 nominations, 76 of whom we are sharing with you here today. These groundbreakers are making an impact on their communities and the industry as a whole. Some of these names and faces may be familiar to many of you, but we hope you’ll also meet founders of hospitality groups, investment companies and associations you may not have been aware of before.

Even with your contributions and 76 names, this remains a non-comprehensive list, and we’d love to hear about the founders and entrepreneurs you admire in the restaurant industry. In the meantime, meet the Restaurant Hospitality Power List Reader Picks.
