Restaurant operators gathered in Phoenix to share lessons, best practices and more with their peers. If you didn't make it to this year's Restaurant Leadership Conference, here's a few learnings you might have missed.

When Donaberger first started at Saladworks, the Conshohocken, Pa.-based chain had 10,000 Facebook fans and 1,000 Twitter followers. In the span of just over a year, he has more than doubled its Facebook fans to 26,000 and quadrupled Twitter followers to more than 4,000.

Today’s scheduled speakers include Dr. Ben Carson; former U.S. Rep. Gabby Giffords and her husband, astronaut Mark Kelly; and professional golfer Cheyenne Woods.

The promotion will enable Kruguer to integrate the chain’s U.S. and international operations.

The company also promoted Corey Horsch to CFO and elected a new director.
