Los Angeles-based Factory Place Hospitality Group has hired Bryan Marn and Janalane Southard to oversee restaurant sales and events at its properties in Los Angeles and Las Vegas. Marn joins the FPHG team as events director for the group’s Los Angeles restaurants—The Factory Kitchen, Officine BRERA, and sixth+mill pizzeria and bar.

Marn has 20 years of food and beverage experience, mostly in New York and L.A. Southard also joins the Factory Place Hospitality Group with two decades of experience in Las Vegas. 

“It is so exciting to be an integral part of the The Factory Kitchen Las Vegas team from the very beginning! I am passionate about connecting with our guests on a personal level to cultivate long-term relationships and return business,” says Southard.

FPHG’s four celebrated restaurants are the original The Factory Kitchen, Officine BRERA and sixth+mill pizzeria and bar, all in Downtown L.A., and The Factory Kitchen at The Venetian Resort Las Vegas on the Las Vegas Strip.
