QSR Magazine Named Among Top 10 Business Publications

Durham, NC, May 18, 2007 --(PR.com)-- QSR magazine, a publication for executives and operators in the foodservice industry, announced that the American Society of Business Publication Editors (ASBPE) has chosen the magazine among the Top 10 U.S. business, trade, and association magazines in the Under 80,000 Circulation division. The 10-year-old QSR has claimed numerous awards and accolades in the publishing industry.

ASBPE's Top 10 list is an outgrowth of the organization's Magazine of the Year competition that recognizes the hard work and commitment of business and professional publications. Each year the ASBPE evaluates a large number of fine magazines and presents the Magazine of the Year award as a prestigious acknowledgment of editorial work that meets high standards of excellence.

“We are very pleased to receive this honor for the second year in a row,” said Greg Sanders, associate publisher of QSR magazine. “When you consider that there are thousands of b-to-b and trade publications in existence, to be recognized as one of the 10 best is simply extraordinary. It’s a great compliment to our editorial and design team, as well as to everyone who has a hand in making QSR what it is.”

QSR magazine maintains a controlled subscriber base of 30,000 restaurant industry executives and quick-service and fast-casual restaurant owners and operators, making QSR the strongest player, by far, in its niche market.

With its recently redesigned website, QSRmagazine.com, QSR has made a significant commitment to digital media coverage of the restaurant industry. “The website, coupled with QSR's recognized editorial talent and exceptional design capabilities, makes QSR a key player in the business-to-business media segment,” said Kevin Donaldson, QSR's marketing director.
