The Hawaii Restaurant Association is pleased to announce a program that allows restaurateurs and managers to recognize and publicly honor exceptional employees of restaurants and other food service operations, in two categories:





This is your opportunity to nominate your “Best of the House” on your staff.  Awards will be given for non-management/non-supervisory positions in these two categories.


An independent committee will evaluate performance/service that goes above and beyond the nominee’s normal job responsibilities, outstanding and unusual service to the restaurant, to the guest, and/or to the community.

General Rules for All Categories

1. All employees must be nominated by a manager or supervisor for work done in the calendar year 2014.

2. Participants may submit one entry – per category – per restaurant or allied member.

3. All nominees must currently be employed at the restaurant making the nomination and not a concession or outside source.

4. Nomination should be written in a maximum of 300 words on the Nomination page or written form then emailed to co-chair Gregg Fraser at gregg.fraser@hawaiirestaurant.org . If you need help to complete, call co-chair Jan Kaeo at 258-4296 or email at Jan-Kaeo@hawaii.rr.com
