General Manager Jeremy Hughes
Though his goals have changed throughout his career, Jeremy Hughes’ dedication to delivering genuine hospitality in the restaurant industry has remained the same.
In 2004, Hughes joined the Cameron Mitchell Restaurants (CMR) team and worked in the heart of the kitchen in various roles, including prep cook, line cook and sous chef, before changing directions to become a dining room manager and assistant general manager. Throughout his career, he has worked at Martini Italian Bistro, Marcella's Italian Kitchen, Martini Modern Italian and Cap City Fine Diner and Bar in Grandview. Hughes currently serves as the general manager at Cap City in Gahanna.
In 2010, Hughes was honored with an internal award of Dining Room Manager of the Year when he worked at Cap City in Grandview.
The most important lesson Hughes has learned during his professional career is to “always keep an open mind, because you never know what opportunities will open up.” By taking advantage of opportunities CMR has provided him, he has had the chance to grow as a manager and within the company. He believes he’s been able to succeed because of the caring people within CMR and believes the industry, although it is hard work, is very rewarding.
Residing in Columbus, Hughes enjoys traveling, cooking, spending time outdoors, as well as spending time with his fiancée Starla, and his son Keegan.
