National Business Development Manager
Rickey Copley-Spivey, National Business Development Manager for Lettuce Parties and Special Events, began working in hospitality while studying theatre and music in college. His experience as a catering server led to a management position, and when he moved to Chicago after school, he found a career with Lettuce Entertain You.
At Joe’s Seafood, Prime Steak and Stone Crab, he helped guests plan the perfect business lunch or family birthday celebration, assisting with special events for three years. He then moved on to Nacional 27 and Tallboy Taco, planning restaurant buyouts and lavish parties.
In his current role, he relishes the opportunity to introduce new guests to the varied concepts under the Lettuce Entertain You umbrella. He uses his experience from the restaurant floor to craft parties for clients large and small in Chicago, D.C, Las Vegas and Los Angeles.
Outside of work, Rickey loves to travel, try new restaurants, be active and spend time with his husband Aaron Copley-Spivey.
