The Judges


The inaugural Casual Dining Awards helped to foster a sense of community and identify outstanding achievement. I think we have something special to look forward to with this years awards.

It is vital that we reward and recognise the leaders of our industry that showcases the talent and innovation within the casual dining sector. This means that we will attract the attention of talent and investors from outside the sector which will keep us all thriving.
