Hi! My name is Chad Rice. I was born and raised in Asheville, NC. I attended Appalachian State University before I began my career in restaurant management. Over the past 10 years I have managed in a varying type of restaurants, from corporate to locally owned. As the reception/reservation/special events manager I am ecstatic to accompany this team to a successful launch. I believe true success will always come from a team who supports each other 100 percent. We are all in this together! I enjoy the local scene here in Asheville. You can find me at the local breweries or out hiking on the trails. I have two Dobermans that travel with me everywhere. My favorite restaurant in town would be Nine Mile, and I will always go for the porter selection on a beer list! I also enjoy seeing the world- Australia is next on my bucket list. I can not express the excitement I have to be a part of Ukiah! This will be a wonderful experience and I am thrilled to meet you all.
