LYFE Kitchen Restaurant, a socially responsible lifestyle brand, is pleased to announce that Stacy Soderstrom has joined the team as the director of franchise development. Soderstrom will lead the charge of identifying and recruiting passionate franchisee candidates who wish to bring LYFE to their communities.

In late 2012, LYFE launched the application process for potential franchisees, seeking operators who embrace its mission and goal of making great-tasting, good-for-you food available to consumers throughout the country.

Prior to joining LYFE, Soderstrom served as the director of franchise development for Quiznos. Managing West Coast operations, she helped lead regional growth resulting in a 60 percent rise in store locations. With more than 10 years of experience in facilitating company growth through franchises, Soderstrom’s background and knowledge will help LYFE achieve its aggressive growth strategy.

“To see what the company has already accomplished is awe-inspiring,” said Soderstrom. “LYFE Kitchen has a strong vision and commitment already being executed in Palo Alto for the past year. As someone with a longstanding personal interest in staying active and living well, I’m passionate about the lifestyle this brand embodies.”

Soderstrom graduated from Portland State University with a Bachelor’s of Science in Business with an emphasis in Advertising and Marketing.

LYFE works with renowned chefs, a proven and experienced leadership team, aims for best-in-class sourcing as well as strict sustainability standards, and Soderstrom will assist the team in finding equally committed industry leaders to join its world-class roster.
