Good food and new technology are beautiful things. If you want to savor a
mouthwatering burger that boasts 100 percent smashed Angus Beef, you will want
to try Smashburger, one of the top 50 restaurants shaping the fast casual
segment. Smashburger doesn’t squish. They smash in order to caramelize the beef,
which helps to lock in the juices unlike any other cooking method. David
Prokupek, Smashburger’s chairman and chief executive officer, has a passion for
delicious burgers and is one of the top people in the fast casual
arena.

Gluten-free foods are huge in 2012. 18 million Americans suffer from gluten sensitivity. The
US market for gluten-free foods has reached an astounding $2.6 billion and this
market is expected to expand. As a result of greater interest in healthy food
options and more sustainable menu selections, back-to-scratch cooking has gained
momentum within the restaurant industry and is poised for future popularity. If
you’re a tech junkie, you may just love the Coca Cola Freestyle, which gives
operators the ability provide 120-plus beverage choices.

As far as some of the key trends are concerned, social media and mobile food
ordering have essentially become embedded within the mainstream. This
infographic highlights the top restaurants chains, people, trends and
