The Iowa Restaurant Association released this year’s 40 Women to Watch in Hospitality. The honorees work in all segments and functions in the industry, including purveyors, entrepreneurs, chefs and business development professionals. More than 100 nominations were submitted from across the state. The women on the list are “blazing new trails, leading by example, and impressing their peers, customers and managers daily,” according to the Iowa Restaurant Association.

Honorees will be recognized in person on Nov. 16 at the Iowa Events Center (Community Choice Convention Center) in Des Moines during the Iowa Restaurant Association’s annual Celebrating Excellence Awards ceremony. They will also be featured in Food and Beverage Iowa Business Quarterly. In addition, a synopsis of each woman’s industry story will be launched on the Iowa Restaurant Association website.
