LETTUCE ENTERTAIN YOU
A special relationship has existed between Equipment Dynamics Inc. and Lettuce Entertain You Enterprises, one of the nation’s premier restaurant developers.  Founded in 1971 by Rich Melman, the company has developed a range of successful concepts ranging from Wildfire and Maggiano's to Big Bowl and HUB 51. Some of the finest restaurants in the country are LEYE concepts, including Joe's Seafood, Prime Steaks and Stone Crab and Shaw's Crab House.
EDI has played a key role in many of these projects, working on over 80 restaurants through the years. Working with this highly creative team has provided unique experiences, resulting in an approach to kitchen design that emphasizes the importance of the creative vision while ensuring that the practical demands of budget, space limitations and performance are met.
