Who’s FABI at this year’s NRA Show?

Recipients of this year’s FABI Awards are just some of the new and creative items you’ll find at NRA Show 2017 that could change the way you do business, and how your customers order food and beverages at your restaurant.

Each year, we showcase our Food and Beverage Award recipients, and this year is no different. During NRA Show 2017, May 20-23, at McCormick Place in Chicago, we’ll feature our 36 honorees and the products they’re being recognized for. They include everything from micro-cold-brew tea to the world’s first plant-based burger to chili pepper-infused honey to gluten-free biscuits and pizza dough to slow-roasted tomato sofrito.

Here’s a closer look at three of our 2017 FABI recipients:

Kiki’s gluten-free biscuit sandwich

The first frozen gluten-free biscuit sandwich is the perfect breakfast or lunch option for allergic or gluten-sensitive consumers on the go. It’s individually wrapped to prevent cross-contamination and available in a variety of options.

Beyond Meat’s Beyond Burger

This plant-based burger looks, cooks and tastes like fresh ground beef. It also features a healthy nutritional profile and 20 grams of protein per serving.

Mike’s hot honey

This chili-infused honey pairs heat and sweet for the perfect condiment. It’s great on pizza, chicken, ribs, biscuits, salads – and in cocktails!

Can we just say YUM to all of this? Here’s the complete list of our 2017 FABI recipients.

Atour Eyvazian, our convention chair this year and the owner of 107 Jack in the Box restaurants in Houston and San Antonio, says the best thing about the FABI Awards is it gives restaurateurs the inside track on how to innovate and offer the best, most creative options to customers. And that can only translate into success in an ever-growing and competitive marketplace. “It’s very exciting to discover new flavors, on-trend menu items and delicious food that’s nutritious and, often, allergy-friendly.”

If you haven’t signed up yet to attend our Show, now’s the time to start making your plans! We’re offering a 30-percent discount on registration through April 7. Don’t be late for this very important date.
