Francesca Names New Corporate Chef

Kevin-Ives-sm.jpgScott Harris doesn't sit still. He just brought on Kevin Ives to serve as corporate chef for his growing Francesca's restaurant empire. Ives most recently was exec chef at Merrimans Restaurants in Maui and Kauai, where he crafted a sustainable menu sourcing 90 percent of the ingredients locally in the Hawaiian islands. In a press release, Harris said that with their expansion to the West Coast, it made sense to bring someone in to help with the growth. [EaterWire]
