Being a true entrepreneur and with the foundation of a growing and engaged audience, Danielle launched her own brand, Second Skin Overalls in 2016. In late 2018, Danielle launched her third swimwear collaboration with Onia Swim, which then led to her highly coveted brand We Wore What Swim (which now includes swim and jumpsuits). Her latest swim collection with Onia was truly remarkable, as she sold nearly $2 Million in product in 12 hours.
Danielle’s entrepreneurial accomplishments have also spanned outside of the fashion realm. Through her successful collaborations with Highline Wellness, Danielle has now become an advisor for the CBD brand as well. In October of 2019, Danielle launched a tech company called Moe Assist, which is an organizational tool for social media influencers. Inspired by her love of fitness, Danielle launched We Danced What, a series of weekly dance videos and host dance classes for fans weekly in NYC. The fitness vertical has expanded her brand into the lifestyle and activewear space and is further supported by her long-term ambassadorship with Fiji Water. Danielle also released her second collection with Joe’s Jeans in Fall 2019. She has a highly anticipated book set to be released in Spring 2020.

Chaya Krinsky is the Co-Founder and creative director of TOV furniture. In 2012, Chaya and her husband Bruce created TOV Furniture with a mission to build a furniture brand that is both stylish and affordable, something they felt was missing in the industry. Since then the company has seen a 60% growth year over year selling through brick-and-mortar furniture stores as well as some of the leading online retailers like Amazon, Wayfair and Houzz.
With innovative designs, friendly customer service and affordable, comfortable, quality pieces, Chaya has developed a cult-like following for the brand and has collaborated with some of the design industry’s biggest names. She has a keen understanding for what the millennial shopper wants and is able to develop product which shows tremendous value. Built on the concept that they want something more of a fashion item than a long-term investment, with a trademarked catch phrase, “Don’t be boring”.
From there, Molly was able to combine her teaching skills with her restaurant background and moved into the role of divisional training manager in 2011 and helped to rewrite Lettuce’s training program. In this position, she is responsible for interviewing and hiring, as well as facilitating staff training classes and ongoing employee development. As Molly says, “The most rewarding part of my day is when I can connect with our employees and am able to show off the culture that we’ve created.”
Molly has helped to open several restaurants in and around Chicago, including RPM Italian and RPM Steak with celebrity partners Giuliana and Bill Rancic, Studio Paris, Bub City, Three Dots and a Dash, Ramen-san, and il Porcellino in downtown Chicago, as well as Bub City and Joe’s Live in Rosemont, Illinois. In June 2016, Molly played a large role in the expansion to Washington, D.C., opening the second location of RPM Italian. Bringing the Lettuce culture to a new city brought on a whole new set of challenges that Molly was able to take on with her team.
In 2017, Molly helped create the Rowe Club, a Lettuce Entertain You organization created to empower women in the restaurant industry.
Molly and her partners most recently opened multi-concept restaurants and a private and event space on the Chicago River including Pizzeria Portofino which opened in July 2019, RPM On The Water which opened in September 2019 and RPM Seafood which opened January 2020.
