Cincinnati, OH, July 16, 2020 – LSI Industries (NASDAQ: LYTS) said today that the company has received Samsung’s Smart Signage Award for Food & Beverage Installation of the Year.  The award recognizes LSI for developing communication solutions for quick service restaurant (QSR) customers using innovative digital signage technology.
