New York, NY (PRWEB) July 29, 2014
Nation’s Restaurant News just announced its 5 honorees as “Hot Concepts” for Multi-Unit Restaurant Operators. LYFE Kitchen, led by Mike Roberts, former global president and COO for McDonald's, was recognized for its excellence and made the short honoree list. Roberts reached out to Synergy early in the development of the concept to facilitate the incubation of the idea and bring it to fruition.
“Synergy brought a full menu of skills to help formalize the vision for LYFE Kitchen. In conjunction with notable celebrity chefs, our team focused on good tasting, healthy restaurant fare,” says Dean Small, founder and managing partner. “Mike also recognized that our extensive operational experience would be crucial to successfully scaling the concept to work in multiple locations throughout the United States.”
Each location showcases a diverse menu with locally sourced farm-to-table provisions. While the food will always be the centerpiece of LYFE Kitchen, Synergy brought the full weight of its culinary, operations, design and human team, helping fine tune the initial idea into an expertly staffed, eco-friendly environment that captures the spirit of the brand.
Small, who shared project duties with co-managing partner, Danny Bendas, “understood how important tight operating systems would become as LYFE Kitchen entered its national expansion mode.” “We are pleased and proud to be part of LYFE Kitchen’s DNA as it gains momentum and garners awards,” concludes Small.
