Food News Media, the independent publisher of QSR and FSR magazines, proudly announces that each magazine took home Gold for Full Issues from Folio’s Eddie Awards, which honor excellence in magazine journalism and were awarded last week.

The awards reflect Food News Media’s dedication to creating high-quality content for owners and operators in the national restaurant industry.

“We’re enormously proud to win these distinguished awards,” says Sam Oches, editorial director of Food News Media. “Our editorial team has a passion for great content and a passion for the restaurant industry. When you put them together, you get two publications that are at the top of their game.”

FSR magazine, which serves chefs and other professionals in the full-service restaurant industry, took home Gold for its November 2017 issue. That issue featured a lengthy profile from former editor Connie Gentry on food entrepreneur Kimbal Musk.

QSR magazine, which serves executives and franchisees in the quick-service and fast-casual restaurant industries, took home Gold for its May 2018 issue. That issue featured McDonald’s CEO Steve Easterbrook on the cover and shared an exclusive interview with the head of America’s largest restaurant company.

Food News Media is part of Journalistic Inc., a Chapel Hill, North Carolina–based publishing company.

The Eddie Awards were announced at an awards banquet in New York on October 9.
