Ronnie Gainey & Dana Freel
As with every other Brucci’s location, individuality and a sense of neighborhood identity are keys to our success. Each location brings and adds something new and unique to our family. Ronnie Gainey and Dana Freel are no exceptions. As long time regulars of the West Beaches location, they reached out to founder Bruce Jackson about a possible 4th location. After settling on the Gate Pkwy location in September 2013, we opened on January 29th, 2014. As a teenager and in his twenties, Ronnie worked for an Italian restaurant. In his own words, “I loved the restaurant business and the new adventures that each day brought.” Dana came on board with a business banking background and the rest is history. Both are very hands on and want to create the same great atmosphere and customer experience they witnessed as regulars of the West Beaches location.
The Gate Pkwy location has regular live music and entertainment. On occasion you can catch owner, Ronnie jumping off the pizza line and onto the mike to show off his songwriting and musical abilities. Dana says the Chicken Pesto Pizza is her favorite these days but, their daily lunch & dinner specials make it easy to try everything.
