VIDEO: Inside CSNews’ Foodservice Innovators Awards

YORK, Pa. and WILMINGTON, Del. -- Last month, two of the nation’s best-in-class foodservice retailers received gold medals in the 2013 Convenience Store News Foodservice Innovators Awards competition. They shared this recognition with hundreds of their associates at their annual end-of-year company meetings.

The CSNews Foodservice Innovators Awards, sponsored by Tyson Foods, recognizes convenience retail leaders who are raising the bar on quality, service and innovation in the fast-growing and critically important category of foodservice.

On Thursday, Dec. 11, accompanied by Tyson Foods executives, CSNews traveled to York, Pa., to present Rutter’s Farm Stores with its gold medal as 2013’s Best Prepared Foods Innovator and a silver medal for Best Limited-Time Offer or Promotion.

On Friday, Dec. 12, in Wilmington, Del., almost a thousand Wawa Inc. associates gathered for the company’s annual general managers meeting, which brings together managers from the more than 600 convenience stores the retailer operates in the Mid-Atlantic states and Florida. Wawa won the top prize as 2013 Foodservice Innovator of the Year.
