City of Industry, CA January 17, 2011 – US Bankcard Services, Inc.

According to Chinese Restaurant News (CRN), “CRN aspires to present the best of Chinese cuisine and implement universal excellence in dining standards for Chinese restaurants. To accomplish these goals, CRN took on the formidable task of launching an annual awards competition. The first of its kind, the ranking of the ‘Top 100 Chinese Restaurants in the USA’ had its national debut in 2004 in New York.” CRN noted that the Chinese Restaurant Industry has since then had over $20 billion annual sales with over 46,700 Chinese restaurants in the US. There were more Chinese restaurants in the US than McDonald's, Burger King, and Wendy's combined! And Chinese food, Italian food and Mexican food have become the three most popular ethnic foods that were consumed daily by mainstream Americans, and pizza, spaghetti, tacos, tortilla, egg rolls and fried rice were the favorite foods among Americans, according to a survey conducted by National Restaurant Association (NRA).
USBSI has been a proud sponsor of “Top 100 Chinese Restaurants” Annual Event for four years now. This special, invitation only event was the “who’s who” in the US Chinese restaurateur circles. Chris Chang, USBSI’s president explained, “Ever since USBSI started its business, restaurants have always been a vital market for us and more importantly [this event] is an opportunity for us to be directly involved with an industry that we love and depend on.” USBSI was located in the premier booth area.
