A new year, a new award for a well deserving, hard-working marketing team! I’m so excited to announce that the QSR Automations blog was named the winner of a Gold Stevie® Award in Web Achievement category in the 17th Annual American Business Awards® for web writing and content.

Comments from the Award-Winning Team
To say I am proud of this team would be an understatement. The reality is, each team member brings something unique to the mix and that greatly contributes to our success. I’m grateful to be a part of this award-winning team! Here’s what they think about our latest win:
“The blog has experienced tremendous growth over the past year to year and a half, and winning the gold award is additional proof to the value it provides to our audience. Seeing all of the work in developing the content, the writing, design and overall strategy, is a huge testament to our team – of which I couldn’t be prouder to be a part!”
-Bob Mattingly, Senior Creative Designer
“There’s so much more that goes into a blog outside of just writing. There’s planning, strategy, a little bit of psychology, and design. It’s truly a team effort! One of my favorite things about blogging is creating a piece of content that provides utility to the reader. We’ve tried to create useful, engaging content from the beginning, and it makes me happy to see some recognition for it!”
-Dylan Chadwick, Content Marketing Manager
“This award means so much to our team and company. It’s a great achievement to be recognized for our blog and all of the hard work that goes into making it compelling and purposeful. A huge round of applause to our team!”
-Chrisea Chosta, Product Marketing Manager
“Coming into the company as a content specialist, it was a little overwhelming to consider how I would integrate my talent. But the QSR Automations blog is an incredibly lean and well-oiled machine run by a team that incorporates a carefully measured strategy for content creation and places value on the ideas of everyone involved. Finding something to write about and ways to contribute hasn’t just been easy but fun, and the blog represents our opportunity to share our knowledge with the greater community. It’s an honor to have that work recognized, and I look forward to continuing to produce excellent content.”
-Syd Bishop, Content Specialist
“It’s really exciting to have the blog win a GOLD award! As with any process, when you’re in it, you feel like the thing that you’re working so hard on is a good thing. Then, to have the blog recognized as a good blog by judges for an award is an amazing feeling. It’s awesome to work with great people on a great team for a company that produces a variety of content! I wasn’t with QSR for the beginning and launch of the blog, BUT it’s fun to see it grow and evolve into this awesome, dynamic body of work that a group of awesome people each had a hand in the content and look!”
-Devyn Nance, Marketing Coordinator
We’re pumped to head to New York City in June to receive the award, along with other exceptional marketing professionals. Read more about our win in our latest press release.
