InMoment, the leading Voice of Customer (VoC) vendor in the food services industry, is proud to recognize Smashburger for being crowned No. 1 in Fast Casual magazine’s prestigious “Top 100 Movers and Shakers” list for 2014. This award follows a No. 6 ranking on Forbes’ “America’s Most Promising Companies” list this year, and a No. 2 ranking on the Franchise Times “2014 Fast & Serious” list of smartest-growing brands. Smashburger is a leading fast casual “better burger” restaurant with more than 272 corporate and franchise restaurants operating in 30 states and five international countries.

The Fast Casual Top 100 Movers and Shakers awards are highly-competitive. This year’s contest attracted nearly 900 nominations.

We’re proud to be involved with such a great company and thrilled they’re being recognized for their leadership.”
