The 2016 FAB AWARDS  

Fast Food/QSR Quick Service Restaurant of the Year 2016

The Fast Food / QSR of the year award was won by LEON at Heathrow Airport. The core Leon experience – and menu – is fully international. We believe that traditional fast food at pass-through destinations is no longer viable: these days, travellers are searching for healthy nutritional fare when they’re on the go. An airport environment such as Heathrow Terminal 2, gives us the opportunity to realise and encourage a true cultural space where different people, worlds, and cuisines converge.
We have designed a menu that has revolutionised the future of airport food, offering healthy revitalising fare that provides weary passengers with an energy boost en route, one that best prepares them for a flight or helps them recover from jet lag.  All of our dishes have been considered with different passenger need states in mind.

Digital or Social Media Initiative of the Year 2016

The Digital or Social Media Initiative of the Year award was won by  Autogrill for the launch of Le Chef Restaurant in Geneva Airport. Social Media Strategy was focusing on 3 marketing and communication objectives: CUSTOMER LOYALTY: Keeping the existing customers; CUSTOMER RECRUITEMENT: Gaining new travelling customers (local and abroad); POSITIVE AWARENESS: Make it the place to be for locals and employees from around – and 3 CONTENT PILLARS: The Place: A new and unique location, generating  awareness and curiosity - as the restaurant was closing month and 1⁄2 of work for redesign, social media content was geared at communicating positively on this closing sharing the work in progress and teasing for the new restaurant opening; second pillar was The Food: An innovative new offer, generating desire of discovery, with some post unveiling menu selections, portraits of local producers and suppliers. And, the third pillar was the Chef, Benjamin Luzuy: a well-known face, that generates trust and commitment. Strategy used pictures and video teasers of the Chef in unusual situations preparing its arrival at Le Chef – Geneva Airport . Benjamin Luzuy, presenting his own TV show on Swiss national TV, embodies a new generation of chefs who are passionate about their profession and by life in general, and who are resolutely orientated towards pleasure, sharing, social interchange. His latest Geneva ventures gather together a clientele united by a taste for the good and the beautiful.

Corporate Social Responsibility Initiative of the Year 2016

The Corporate Social Responsibility Initiative of the Year award was won by Autogrill for The Tenth Year of Sustainability Report.
