Agave & Rye announced its appointment of Joshua Peyton to Corporate Director of Food and Beverage. The modern Tequila and Bourbon Hall’s menu sets Agave & Rye apart from the traditional restaurant, with fresh, made-from-scratch recipes and only the best ingredients available, offering inventive ways for guests to enjoy expertly crafted food. With more than fourteen years of management experience in the food service industry, Peyton will begin his new post immediately, and is an epic fit for the Agave & Rye team, brand and culture, overall.
Before joining Agave & Rye, Peyton served as the Director of Operations for the Boca Restaurant Group in Cincinnati from 2016 to 2022. While at the critically-acclaimed restaurant, Peyton oversaw seven brick and mortar locations and one virtual Boca location. Based in the Cincinnati area, Peyton was also the Director of Food and Beverage for the Columbia Suffix Renaissance Hotel, Wine Manager of The Capital Grill, and General Manager of Jeff Ruby Culinary Entertainment.
“Before joining the Agave & Rye family, I had frequented Agave & Rye’s Liberty Center location and was familiar with the restaurant’s growth trajectory,” says Peyton. “I’ve been very impressed with the brand’s core values, and this Epic team lives those values. It’s great to be part of a group where we care very much about our people. Without our people, we can’t do what we do best.”
“We believe food is a vehicle for joy and community. With Josh on board, we’re excited to continue building the Agave & Rye brand,” says Yavonne Sarber, Co-Founder and CEO of Agave & Rye. “We’re confident Josh’s guidance will continue to keep our restaurants exciting and surprising to our guests each time they visit.”
