As of earlier this month, The Herb Box co-owners Becky Windels and Susan Wilcox have parted ways. Windels and Wilcox founded The Herb Box as a catering company in 1995, eventually expanding the business to include two restaurants — one at DC Ranch in Scottsdale and a second at Southbridge in Old Town Scottsdale. The company also plans to open a third location at The Colony in Central Phoenix next year.
In a joint statement announcing Windels' departure, the former chef says:
“It was a very tough decision choosing to leave The Herb Box. Susan and I have been very fortunate to create a culinary concept that has been very well received, and I will be forever grateful for the community’s support of The Herb Box. It has given me so much joy to create delicious and memorable food for the restaurants and catering division over the past 20 years. The Herb Box has assembled a dedicated and hard-working team, and I will miss my kitchen staff greatly. They have been integral to shaping the restaurants and catering division. I wish The Herb Box many more years of continued success.”
According to Wilcox, who will continue to run the business, the menu at the restaurants will not change significantly.
