Please join me in congratulating Naomi S. on her recent promotion to Associate General Manager!
Naomi started with Yard House a year and a half ago and was part of the Northridge, CA opening team. She came to us with a strong background in training from another concept and quickly became a leader in the restaurant. She is always teaching, moving forward and making things better.
She drives shifts with a smile on her face while holding all accountable. In the short time she has been with Yard House she has already run every department and is currently the bar manager in Oxnard, CA.

Please join me in congratulating Mike H. on his recent promotion to Director of Operations!
Mike joined Yard House almost two years ago with impressive experience including being a VP of Operations for a restaurant company and then an owner/operator of his own restaurant group. He came on board as the General Manager of Yard House in Palm Beach Gardens, FL and with some pretty high expectations to live up to – and as Mike took on the role he quickly did just that!
Mike proved to be a calm yet dynamic leader who not only thinks with a big-picture perspective but participates regularly in the trenches; bussing tables, seating guests and doing whatever is necessary to help the restaurant run and take care of the guest. Mike also has done an amazing job not only developing his team, but getting his team to develop their collective team by not only driving each other but themselves. We appreciate the leadership Mike has provided Palm Beach Gardens thus far and look forward to many years of valuable contributions at the next level.
Sincerely, Chad D.
(Regional VP, Yard House)

Today is a bittersweet day in the Support Center as we say farewell and best of luck to Kasey M. from our Yard Core Support Center team. Kasey has chosen to leave her current position as Yard Core Coordinator to pursue her dreams to work in the field of Fitness and Nutrition.
Kasey started with Yard House in 1999 at our Long Beach, CA location and moved into her Yard Core Administrative Coordinator role at the Support Center in 2007. Her role was all encompassing when it came to anyone and everyone who traveled and trained with the Yard House teams.
We will greatly miss her as the always smiling Kasey walking through the halls of the office but we wish her all the best in her new journey. We will miss you Kasey.

James started with us in November of 2009, he began his tour in Rancho Cucamonga, CA for his first year and then spent a brief time supporting in Temecula, CA and Long Beach, CA and then moved onto Costa Mesa, CA where he’s been for the past year and a half.
James has had the opportunity to be part of every department and is currently with the bar team in Costa Mesa; he has been great at driving his vision for the bar with his team in that location, whether that is focus on beer head, rolling out mules or building chalkboard sales thus proving they are the “little engine that could”.
James’ ability to motivate his team in the building and maintain a fair and consistent leadership approach has made a positive impact in the restaurant. Our resident “Employee of the Year” Megan has said “you always know where you stand with James and he holds everyone accountable with fairness.” James has shown he can perform in locations big and small. James was instrumental in the roll out of DASH and was a visiting manager for that roll out for other locations and got tons of positive feedback from Jeni, Ciaran, and the visited teams.
James’ balance of emotional leadership, drive and excellent shift running make him a leader and we are very proud of him.

On November 25th Stephen B, a server from our Red Rock Casino location, performed the Heimlich maneuver on one of our guests who was choking. That guest is named Steve (what a coincidence) and was extremely thankful and wrote a letter to express his appreciation for Stephen’s quick thinking and fast response.
Below is the letter we received from the guest and thank you again Stephen for your heroic act!!
