Why QuickChek Is the 2019 Prepared Foods Innovator of the Year
WHITEHOUSE STATION, N.J. — QuickChek, the overall Foodservice Innovator of the Year winner in 2016, takes home this year's prize in the prepared foods category. This spring, the Whitehouse Station-based chain expanded its foodservice team by appointing Chris Smyly as director of foodservice and hiring chef Ted Kwiecien as culinary specialist.
"QuickChek stands out among Northeast c-store chains as clearly the best when it comes to fresh, prepared subs and sandwiches," said one Foodservice Advisory Council member.
Added another: "QuickChek continues to add relevant, easy-to-execute flavors to their menu, including vegetarian, Angus and Mediterranean options. They deliver on fresh, and recently amped up their culinary team to place additional focus on the category."
