Over a two month period the Indy Star News paper along with local restaurants vote for what they believe is the top new item for the upcoming festival. They choose several food items from different food categories, from there they choose the top 10 items and have the public vote to elect the top item for that year. Pizza Cone finished second for 2009, Mitchell Brown CEO of Cono Italiano, Inc. believes “The reception the pizza cone received by the public is fascinating, in a nominal amount of time we have made the consumer aware of this product and it was embraced by people of all ages who have sampled the cone.”
