Each year, Nation’s Restaurant News honors five emerging restaurant concepts that are changing the face of foodservice. Criteria for the Hot Concepts, selected by the NRN editorial team, include being a
standout restaurant with proven success in either three markets or among five units. Expansion beyond the first unit must have been launched in the past seven years or fewer. The concepts also exhibit good
financial standing for their growth stage.
