Jonathan Stanyard

Creator and Owner at The Bitter Gringo Co.

I am a well-versed industry Professional Bartender and Consultant. I began this hospitality journey in Northern California in 1999 while working up from the dish pit, onto the floor, into management, and behind the bar. In 2014, I moved to Seattle to continue the pursuit of excellence in the cocktail world. In 2019, I launched a Specialized bar, education, and bitters production, The Bitter Gringo Company.

As a former Creator and Owner with over several years of experience, I am looking to transition into a new career where I can utilize my management skills and passion for customer care. I have over several years of supervisory experience and Leadership, as well as over several years of recruiting/training experience. Throughout my tenure, I had the opportunity to work with teams of up to 40 people and managed operations with multiple departments to ensure that goals were met while maintaining store standards
