Fresh To Order Named in 2015 Fast Casual Top 100 Movers & Shakers List

Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) May 27, 2015 - “Fast-fine” dining innovator Fresh To Order (f2o) debuted as a Top 50 fast-casual dining concept on the 2015 Fast Casual Top Movers & Shakers list.

The winners were announced Sunday night at an awards gala in Chicago, timed to coincide with the annual National Restaurant Association tradeshow.

“The idea behind our Movers and Shakers list is to recognize brands that are going beyond simply generating positive sales and unit growth,” said Cherryh Butler, managing editor of “The process has a bit more subjectivity to it - to identify brands that are taking big risks and making fundamental changes that could dramatically shake up the fast casual status quo.”

Judges narrowed down this year’s Top 50 from a pool of 900 nominations from readers. Criteria included innovation, growth, social responsibility and overall contribution. Fresh To Order debuted at #43 on this list.

“Fresh To Order has been a leading force in the fast-casual dining scene since we opened our first restaurant in 2005 to lines that snaked around the block in Midtown Atlanta,” said Pierre Panos, Fresh To Order Founder and CEO. “Being selected for this prestigious list by validates the consumer demand for our fast-fine menu, and serves to motivate us to continue innovating and earning our guests’ trust in Fresh To Order. We thank them, and, for this recognition.”
