CHICAGO, Nov. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- LYFE Kitchen, the socially responsible restaurant "lyfestyle" brand, announces The Honorable William Daley as a new member of the company's board of directors, effective from 1 November 2012.  


Daley brings tremendous civic and business experience to his role, most recently serving as White House Chief of Staff to President Barack Obama. His extensive knowledge of public policy and business affairs will be an asset to LYFE.

Earlier this month, LYFE announced aggressive growth plans, including its second restaurant location which will open in Culver City, Calif. (9540 Washington Blvd) in January 2013. The brand is also expected to confirm several other locations after the first of the year.

"It's an honor to have someone of Mr. Daley's stature join our board," said LYFE Kitchen's CEO Mike Roberts. "His experience in both the public and private sector, as well as on some of the most prestigious Fortune 100 Boards, is exceptional. We understand that numerous organizations have approached Mr. Daley about joining their boards. He chose LYFE Kitchen because he believes strongly that it's a transformational, socially responsible restaurant LYFESTYLE brand, which is addressing the most significant unmet need facing Americans today – great-tasting food that is convenient, affordable and good for you."

The Honorable William Daley served as President Obama's Chief of Staff from January 2011 until January 2012. He was involved in all aspects and issues faced by the president and the administration, both domestic and foreign.

"I'd like to thank Mike Roberts for welcoming me to LYFE Kitchen's board," stated Daley. "The brand brings a new and innovative concept to the market and with their vision, expertise and dedicated team, they have the potential to make a major difference and change the way America eats. It's an honor to be a part of this talented team, and I believe that their mission will revolutionize casual dining and the industry."

LYFE Kitchen is driven by proven, world‐class leadership.
