From the Media Relations Team at Mike Isabella Concepts:
“Women at Mike Isabella Concepts are banding together, voluntarily speaking out, and supporting their company. Specifically, a group of female leaders and managers from MIC. Please see their letter attached.
To our Friends, Families, Communities, and Guests –
In light of the recent allegations brought against Chef Mike Isabella and the partners at Mike Isabella Concepts (MIC), we want to send a simple message:
Women are the backbone of Mike Isabella Concepts, and we are proud to have earned our success through hard work, dedication and a genuine love of the hospitality industry.
Chef Mike and his team have built a culture based on open-communication, equality, and a productive, friendly work environment.
The executive team’s tenacity and enthusiasm encourage us to give our best every day because MIC is more than a restaurant group; we are family.
We hope for due process over the next few months, and in the meantime, we will continue to band together as a team, work hard, and take pride in serving our loyal guests.
The Women of Mike Isabella Concepts
