2019 Good Food 100 Restaurants Application

Application - Overview

Dear Chefs, Culinary Directors, and CEOs:

The Good Food 100 Restaurants™ application is how chefs, restaurants and food service businesses apply to be part of the 2019 Good Food 100 Restaurants™. The annual list and corresponding economic report is designed to educate eaters and celebrate restaurants who are using their purchasing power to honor and support every link in the food chain and change the food system for good.

This year, marrying shared missions, the Good Food 100 Restaurants™ and the James Beard Foundation have forged a partnership to accelerate transparency in the culinary community and promote the importance and impact of a sustainable food system.
Any U.S. restaurant or food service operation is eligible. No cost to apply.
Individual restaurant data is CONFIDENTIAL.
DEADLINE EXTENDED:  July 31, 2019 (11:59pm PT) 

Application data will be verified by NSF International, and analyzed by the Business Research Division at the Leeds School of Business, University of Colorado Boulder, to create a national economic report that measures the purchasing power impact of restaurants across the country on local/state, regional, and national Good Food economies. The Good Food 100 Restaurants™ List and Economic Assessment will be published in Fall 2019.

In 2018, 125 restaurants, in 23 states, and all 8 regions of the United States participated in the 2nd Annual Good Food 100 Restaurants™, and through their purchasing practices made a $255 million economic impact on the national Good Food economy.
