Meet Debbie Roxarzade

Debbie Roxarzade has been a leader in the restaurant industry for more than 20 years, during which time she has proven herself to be a driven and innovative business woman with a superior talent for strategy and an innate business sense, honed at San Diego State University. Over the years, Debbie has developed a strong knowledge of the hospitality and restaurant industries and established a proven track record of successful business development. Her organic and guest-driven approach combined with her commitment to providing career growth opportunities for her team members is a large part of her success.

In 2014, Debbie was a recipient of the Women Who Mean Business Award, presented by the Las Vegas Business Press and in 2016 she was named one of the Women to Watch by Nevada Business Magazine. She has also been honored by My Vegas Magazine as one of the Top 100 Women of the Year, four years running. While accolades and notoriety are by no means the driving force behind Debbie’s efforts in business, they are good indicators of the level of passion and dedication she brings to everything she does.

After the great success and notoriety of what were ultimately seven restaurants in Los Angeles, Debbie decided to relocate to the newest culinary capital of the world, Las Vegas. Home to more celebrity chefs than possibly anywhere else in the world, Debbie couldn’t have picked a better location for her latest venture. Named after her daughter, the first Rachel’s Kitchen was opened in 2006 – a quaint café featuring delicious and reasonably priced bistro fare.
