Memphis Business Journal - by Andy Ashby
Memphis-based River City Management Group LLC has signed a contract to handle operations at Spindini, an upscale restaurant at 383 South Main.
Chef and part owner Judd Grisanti will still be active at the Downtown restaurant he founded in 2007.
River City Management, which does restaurant management and consulting, will handle day-to-day operations such as food ordering and bank deposits, according to president Preston Lamm.
This frees Grisanti up to focus on cooking and other projects.
"He doesn't have to be here every day and worrying about all the operational work that is no fun," Lamm says.
River City Management Group operates Papa Pia's, The Pig, and Mesquite Chop House locations in Shelby and DeSoto Counties, as well as Rum Boogie Cafe, the Tap Room and King's Palace Cafe on Beale Street.
It recently opened Prime Time Sports Bar and Club Chill at 150 Peabody Place in the former Jillian's space.
