Fishbowl, Inc., the leading data, marketing, and analytics provider for the restaurant industry, has formally opened the nomination period for the seventh annual “Emerging Brands Report.” The annual report identifies 30 brands that are best positioned for success in the year ahead, based on the analysis of consumer feedback via social data. Consumers who ‘discover’ and embrace new brands in the early stages of their development feel uniquely invested in their growth – as these early adopters use social media channels to communicate their enthusiasm, the message is widely distributed and the fan base continues to grow quickly.
Many brands that have made past Emerging Brands lists have achieved and retained significant success by utilizing concepts that are innovative, unique, and engaging to consumers. Some of the top performers in the 2019 Emerging Brands list included Cava Grill, Bartaco, True Food Kitchen, Dig Inn, and Mendocino Farms.
