The Nestlé Professional® Toque d’Or Digital finals took place from 10-13 August 2020, and for the first time in the competition’s 32-year history, the finals were conducted via an online platform with support from industry experts and luminaries. With the LIVE awards ceremony just weeks away (11th September 2020), head to the Toque d’Or Instagram page now to see how the contestants fared in their digital challenges.
From 10-13 August 2020, the front and back of house finalists faced off in a series of virtual challenges designed to provide the tools and skillset for creating a ‘click and collect’ business from their own homes, promoting themselves on social media and becoming adaptable to whatever the restaurant and bar world may throw at them.
The contestants were tasked with designing a menu, marketing strategy, cost plan and growth strategy, resulting in a fully-fledged small business plan. The final challenge was not only to present their plan to the judges, but for each finalist to list the signature items from their menu on OLIO, offering dishes and drinks to their communities. With each contestant selecting a different strategy and ethos for their brand, there was a wide range of impressive businesses on show throughout the week.
Following a week of intense challenges for the finalists, Nestlé Professional® invites the industry to be a part of the first ever Toque d’Or Digital awards ceremony at 16:00, Friday 11th September 2020. The awards ceremony will be free to watch and available to everyone on YouTube and Facebook.
