The Restaurant Hall of Fame Committee, and the BC Restaurant and Foodservices Association (BCRFA), has made certain that the voting process is very transparent. The first year, 2005, sixty prominent industry veterans voted in the inductees for the year. By 2007, 75 members of the industry were on the voting committee. In 2008, 80 members of the industry, including 27 past BC Restaurant Hall of Fame Inductees are on the committee. The voting committee, an amazing group of hospitality professionals, adds further prominence to being inducted, as respected peers vote on individuals in each category. The voting is done electronically, confidentially, and anonymously with an online voting process designed and supported by Tugboat Group.
