Michelle Soda

Director of Operations, HipCityVeg

“Although she worked with high-end steakhouses Barclay Prime and Butcher & Singer during her six-year tenure with STARR Restaurants, it wasn’t too difficult for Soda to make the switch to veggies-only fast-casual chain, HipCityVeg. When friends introduced her to founder Nicole Marquis, the pair hit it off immediately. Starting out as GM, Soda now oversees the company’s rapid expansion, helping launch small-plates spot Charlie was a sinner, new locations of HipCityVeg, and its newest endeavor, Bar Bombon, a vegan Latin snack spot, juicery, and cocktail bar.”
