The Power List 2020: The 50 most influential technology innovators in foodservice

Who are the most influential people in foodservice? Find out in this gallery of Nation’s Restaurant News’ annual Power List.

This year’s list features 50 leaders in technology and innovation. These men and women show that real power comes not from adapting to change – but from creating it on your own terms.

Selected by the editors of Nation’s Restaurant News, the Power List is made up of people bringing game-changing technologies and unrivaled creativity to the biggest issue facing restaurants today – delivery, digital ordering, customer experience and sustainable sourcing. You’ll find restaurant executives, entrepreneurs, chefs, investors, food scientists and pioneers in sustainability, logistics, robotics and marketing.

This year also marks the return of the Top 10 ranking. Click through for the full list – including our pick for the No. 1 most powerful person in the restaurant industry.

You can also read more about each individual on the list, and check back next week for the Reader Picks – restaurant industry power players nominated by our readers.
