Social Brand Awards


There's a new awards ceremony in town. We call it the RIZMYs, or RIZMY Awards if you want to get formal about it. Powered by the RSMI, the RIZMYs showcase the best social and digital brands in the Restaurant & Hospitality industry. Think of it as the Emmys of the foodservice industry.

The first annual RIZMYs will be presented at the Foodservice Digital Marketing Summit (FDMS), in conjunction to FSTEC NexGen, in Phoenix on September 24th. 

Restaurants from all segments of the industry - from fast food to fine dining - have been considered for each of the eight awards. There will be a winner and two runners up for each.
