Award winners will be selected by an independent panel of judges, who will look for the most promising and cutting-edge equipment, technologies and supplies in the market. Award recipients will be showcased in the interactive, hands-on Kitchen Innovations Pavilion at the 2013 National Restaurant Association Restaurant, Hotel-Motel Show.

"Our Kitchen Innovations Award recipients are true pioneers of forward-thinking and efficient products, which are at the heart of every restaurant kitchen and top of mind for every chef and operator," said Mary Pat Heftman, Executive Vice President of Convention for the National Restaurant Association. "Previous KI awardees have gained industry-wide visibility as the most remarkable commercial equipment available, designed to increase productivity and profit potential, as well as to creating and serving safe, nutritious and delicious meals."

"We're looking for things that are new and new technologies, but more importantly, it's innovations that solve problems for restaurateurs," said Robert Marshall, Vice President, U.S. Operations, McDonald's Corp. and a Kitchen Innovations judge.

All applications are judged by an independent panel of industry leaders, including Dan Bendall (Principal, FoodStrategy, Inc.), Martin Cowley (Senior Manager Design and Standards, Walt Disney Parks and Resorts), William Eaton (Chairman of the Board, Cini-Little International), Robert Forrester (Principal, Restaurant Industry Solutions), Foster F. Frable Jr. (Founding Partner, Clevenger Frable LaVallee), Jim Krueger, Jr. (Chief, F&B Research and Development, Headquarters, Air Force Services Agency), Aaron LaMotte (Director, Sodexo Performance Interiors), Robert Marshall (Vice President, U.S. Operations, McDonald's Corporation), and Kathleen H. Seelye (Managing Partner, Ricca Newmark Design).
