Our restaurants provide a sense of home, comfort, and belonging because they have heart. Our heart is our people.
Heart of the House Foundation is a non-profit organization founded by Gavin Kaysen and Alison Arth to sustain the growth, health, and prosperity of our Soigné Hospitality family. Restaurant closures sparked by COVID-19 revealed the profound vulnerability of our beloved hospitality community, and our Foundation’s immediate purpose is to provide bridge support to team members and their families during these uncertain times.
A rising tide lifts all ships. We are grateful for the privilege of being in service to this community and appreciate your generosity.
Our logo is inspired by Kintsugi, the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery by mending the cracked pieces with gold, adding value and beauty to the piece.
No one ever hopes for a crisis, but you can trust that we will take the gifts of hard lessons, new perspectives, and a precious opportunity to lean into caring for one another and emerge stronger and more connected. Adversity is a terrible thing to waste.
