“Entrepreneur Of The Year® has recognized game-changing business leaders for more than 30 years,” says Schwartz. “I’m honored to be a finalist among other disruptors and innovators in the Greater Philadelphia area.”

Ernst & Young LLP (EY US) today announced that Andy Schwartz, Co-Founder and CEO of xtraCHEF, was named an Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2020 Greater Philadelphia Award finalist.

Now in its 34th year, the Entrepreneur Of The Year program honors entrepreneurial business leaders whose ambitions deliver innovation, growth and prosperity as they build and sustain successful businesses that transform our world.

Award winners will be announced through a special virtual event in early October and will join a lifelong community of esteemed Entrepreneur Of The Year alumni from around the world. This year, unstoppable entrepreneurs who have provided extraordinary support for their communities, employees and others during the COVID-19 crisis will also be recognized for their courage, resilience and ingenuity.

Entrepreneur Of The Year is one of the preeminent competitive award programs for entrepreneurs and leaders of high-growth companies. The nominees are evaluated based on six criteria: overcoming adversity; financial performance; societal impact and commitment to building a values-based company; innovation; and talent management. Since its launch, the program has expanded to recognize business leaders in more than 145 cities in over 60 countries around the world.

xtraCHEF is the leading accounts payable (AP) automation and back-office business intelligence solution for restaurants. Founded in 2015 by Schwartz and Bhavik Patel, xtraCHEF has quickly become a name to watch in the restaurant tech space.

During the pandemic, xtraCHEF has released two products to show its commitment to the restaurant industry: xtraCASH, a free version of its food cost and purchase management software, and Sync, a free integration between Toast POS and QuickBooks Online.

“Entrepreneur Of The Year® has recognized game-changing business leaders for more than 30 years,” says Schwartz. “I’m honored to be a finalist among other disruptors and innovators in the Greater Philadelphia area.”

Regional award winners are eligible for consideration for the Entrepreneur Of The Year National Awards, to be announced in November during a virtual awards gala. The Entrepreneur Of The Year National Overall Award winner will then move on to compete for the EY World Entrepreneur Of The Year™ Award in June 2021.

Entrepreneur Of The Year Award winners become lifetime members of a global, multi-industry community of entrepreneurs, with exclusive, ongoing access to the experience, insight and wisdom of program alumni and other ecosystem members in over 60 countries — all supported by vast EY resources.

Founded and produced by Ernst & Young LLP, the Entrepreneur Of The Year Awards are nationally sponsored by SAP America and the Kauffman Foundation.

In Greater Philadelphia, sponsors also include PNC Bank, DFIN, SolomonEdwards Group, Ballard Spahr LLP, Morgan, Lewis & Bockius LLP, Murray Devine & Company and Pepper Troutman LLP.
