Winners of the inaugural QSR Media UK Centegra Awards announced

Nine exemplary chains were recognised.

For the first time, QSR Media has celebrated the very best of the quick service restaurant and fast casual industry in the United Kingdom.

Entries of nine top-tier restaurant brands were recognised for their innovation, creativity, execution, and overall impact.

"Tomorrow, we were due to hold our inaugural QSR Media UK Centegra Conference and Awards. For obvious reasons, that event could not go ahead. However we didn't want that to mean that the hard work of the chains couldn't be recognised by presenting the awards digitally. We'd like to congratulate all the winners and also extend our thoughts to all the restaurant businesses and their staff up and down the country in this unprecedented time." Philippa Charlton, QSR Media UK editor, said.
