Ryan Gilmore, better known as “Scooby,” is on his fourth summer at Wild Tomato. Working most of his days in the Sister Bay restaurant, Scooby was recently promoted to Floor Manager and was a huge help in the opening of the new location this June.
When he’s not at Tomato, you can find him kayaking out to Horseshoe Island, dreaming up his next woodworking master piece or hanging at Blue Horse enjoying his favorite Door County meal, the Meatzilla.
This September Scooby will return to UW-Milwaukee where he’ll continue his studies in architecture. “I think I like architecture because my dad was a mason,” said Scooby with a smile.
Although he returns to Milwaukee in the Fall it’s the team at Tomato that brings him back year after year. “I think the thing I like most about is being able to work alongside the owners. It means a lot to the staff that they are always there working just as hard as the rest of us,” says Scooby. “And I love coming back to Door County. It’s great to live somewhere that is a vacation destination.”
If you see Scooby… Ask him what his favorite Earth, Wind & Fire song is… 😉
