Ryan Smith

he/him

Ryan has been in the food & bev industry for the last 9yrs, the last 5 of which were spent designing bars all over the Southeast, & is excited to bring his love for killer cuisine & groovy cocktails to Downtown Macon.  


When asked, why he chose Macon, "To quote John Cougar, I can be myself here in this small town
And people let me be just what I want to be."

Austin Sanderson

General Manager

he/him

Austin got his start in the industry here at Lazy Susan, but groovy tunes and customer service are in his blood.

 

Aside from being one of the nicest guys you'll ever meet, this Macon native is a professional dj and producer. When he's not touching tables you can catch him turning tables on the 1s & 2s spinning the hottest jams this side of the Ocmulgee.
 
Pro Tip: his master mixes are the perfect pair for our On the Go options.
