It's the little things that distinguish the great servers, bartenders, and hosts from the good.

F&B FOH of the Year

 


The Process

From July 1st - October 31st, 2019 we gathered nominations from visitors, employers, locals and family and friends through an online form. From there we have a committee of industry experts score the nominator comments according to a criteria scale to narrow the categories to three. On December 12th, 2019 the committee met to discuss and determine the winner in each category. We invite you to join us in celebrating the hospitality industry and announcing our winners on Wednesday, January 29th, 2020 at the Valley First Lounge in the Sandman Centre.
