FOOD
This year's winner of the coveted Food category
goes to White Castle's Chicken and Cheese
Slider. Available in vending and micro markets,
the top-selling non-beef slider in White Castle
restaurants joins five other White Castle varieties
that are available in grocers' freezers and foodservice: Original Sliders, Classic Cheese Sliders,
Jalapeño Cheese Sliders, Chicken Breast Sliders and the Sausage, Egg and Cheese Breakfast Slider.
The Chicken and Cheese Sliders are made with all white meat and topped with American cheese.
Taking second place is J&J Snack Foods' Pretzel Fillers Buffalo Cheddar Stuffed Soft Pretzel
White Castle Chicken and Cheese Slider
made with Frank's RedHot. The soft pretzel dough is stuffed with white cheddar cheese infused
with Frank's RedHot hot sauce and lightly dusted with ranch dressing powder.
TECHNOLOGY
Panoptyc, this year's winner in the Technology category,
is a game-changer for micro market operators. Panoptyc
leverages artificial intelligence through a software and
hardware solution to recognize theft and alert the micro
market operator of suspicious behavior. The average micro
market that deploys Panoptyc's technology has gained
255% theft reduction, which translates to thousands of
dollars a year, per market, back in the operator's pocket. The company says its goal is to reduce
shrink for market operators, help them overcome customer theft, and save countless hours that
employees spend watching footage.
Launched in May 2021, ePort Engage from Cantaloupe Inc. was the runner-up in the
Panoptyc
Technology category.
