Top Honors to Lazy Dog Cafe


Lazy Dog Cafes have been honored with the Hot Concepts Award by the prestigious Nation’s Restaurant News, considered the “bible of the industry. With four Southern California locations that continue to defy economic trends by experiencing strong sales, Lazy Dog Cafes will be recognized before a large audience of restaurateurs, chefs and other industry professionals at the 50th Anniversary Multi-Unit Foodservice Operators Conference to be held at the Hilton Anatole in Dallas from Oct. 4-6.
Lazy Dog Cafes was founded in 2003 by Chris Simms and his father, Thomas, who is best known for having launched and expanding the Mimi’s Cafe chain. Lazy Dog Cafes feature an internationally inspired menu that fuses classic American cuisine with influences from Italy, South America, China and France. “The Hot Concepts! Award program captures the entrepreneurial spirit that the foodservice industry was built on,” said Tom Larranaga, publisher of Nation’s Restaurant News. “This year’s winners have beaten the odds and overcome a particularly unforgiving business climate with new restaurant concepts that have strong consumer appeal and great potential for future growth.”
