For example, Arepa Zone won for its S’mores Tres Leches. As the best selling dessert at its restaurant, the dessert plays off both s’mores and a classic tres leches.

While everyone should visit Arepa Zone, this dessert idea could inspire some home-made treats. From the molten Hershey’s milk chocolate to the torched marshmallows and the crunch of the graham crackers, this dessert is the ultimate treat.

More importantly, the $10,000 prize will help the Arepa Zone invest in its future. Knowing that it has to adapt to the customer habits, the money will help improve its website and digital ordering platforms.

For Harry Caray’s, the iconic Chicago restaurant is looking at a difficult fall and winter season. Without patio seating, this prize is the extra resources to keep the restaurant moving forward.

Lastly, Rolling “N” The Dough and its Hershey’s S’mores Toffee Popcorn blends together the iconic flavors. There is something familiar, comforting and always tempting with each handful.

This restaurant is hoping to use the prize money to buy a food truck. The mobile aspect of being able to reach customers can help keep a business moving forward.
