Smithfield Culinary, the foodservice organization under Smithfield Foods dedicated to culinary arts and innovation, has opened entries for its Ready. Set. Good2Go! sweepstakes that gives restaurant operators the chance to win a state-of-the-art mobile ordering system.    

COVID-19 has impacted all industries, but the foodservice industry may be one of the hardest hit. As a result, restaurant operators have been forced to shift their business models to accommodate customer demand for contactless online ordering and delivery.

Smithfield Culinary is helping restaurant operators succeed by offering the chance to win carryout essentials needed to boost business and keep customers coming back. The sweepstakes, featuring a grand prize of $10,000 worth of state-of-the-art tech equipment for an ordering and payment system, and $1,500 worth of carryout packaging, can be found at 

“Our customers have been through a lot in 2020, and we want to be sure that they are able to successfully reach their patrons and embrace this new way of dining,” says Ed Wayda, senior brand manager for Smithfield Culinary. “We hope the sweepstakes motivates restaurant operators to evaluate their current operation and how it can be improved with technology made specifically for streamlining their new takeout processes.”

The sweepstakes is open to part-or-full-time chefs, operators and decision makers in all 50 states who are 18 years of age or older (19 in AL & NE). The contest ends on December 31, 2020.
