1. Nomination Survey

Your opinion is of unique and special value - please take approximately 5-12 minutes to share your opinion by filling out this short survey. Only the first 2 questions are required, although your answers to any remaining questions will enhance our research. Results will be used to help us compile Fishbowl's annual Emerging Brands Report - one of the most exciting publications of the year. Please submit your response by January 10, 2021.

Emerging Brands in the restaurant industry are those that exhibit a strong promise of potential growth in the near future and embrace progressive developments that are innovative and unique. They generate excitement - consumers want to 'discover' them and they feel ownership as the brands grow. What brands will emerge in 2021?
