Rusty Bucket Restaurant and Tavern has promoted Patrick McGinnis, former general manager of the Mercato location, as regional director, overseeing both the Naples, Florida, restaurant and a second Florida location in Sarasota scheduled to open near University Town Center in January.
McGinnis, whose hometown is Sarasota, joined the Columbus, Ohio-based restaurant chain in September 2013, achieving much success with the firm’s expansion into Florida. This will be the 22nd Rusty Bucket Restaurant and Tavern nationwide. Previously, McGinnis worked at Hot Brands International and Outback Steakhouse, his first job as a high school graduate where he eventually achieved the position of managing partner.
McGinnis is married with three children and spends his free time practicing martial arts.
