• The Phoenix Business Journal reports that Fox Restaurant Concepts, which owns concepts such as Flower Child and Zinburger, has hired Christine Barone, former senior vice president of food, evenings and licensed stores with Starbucks, to be CEO of its True Food Kitchen, which it plans to spin off into a standalone business.

True Food Kitchen is described as being "inspired by the principles of Dr. Andrew Weil’s anti-inflammatory food pyramid."
