Chase Seemann, General Manager
Chase Seemann’s family inspired his career in the restaurant industry. Growing up, many of his relatives worked in restaurants and seeing them enjoy their work inspired his passion for pursuing a career in the industry. Seemann began his career as a busser at Scrambler Marie’s and held positions at several different restaurants, including Bob Evans, Steak ‘n Shake and Applebee’s.
He joined the Cameron Mitchell Restaurants (CMR) family in 2011 as a server at Cap City Gahanna. He also spent some time working at CMR’s Ocean Prime concept in Orlando before returning to Cap City as a supervisor and later, a beverage and dining room manager. Seemann is now the general manager of The Barn at Rocky Fork Creek.
He says the family atmosphere and team comradery at CMR is unmatched. Seemann declares that CMR’s culture drives everything the restaurant teams do, and he is proud to be a part of such a warm, inviting company. Through his professional career, he has learned to embrace change. He encourages those interested in a career in restaurants to not be afraid of new situations and instead, embrace them as a challenge. He explains that even if you fail, you will learn and grow from the experience.
Seemann’s favorite CMR dishes are the Meyer Lemon Gratin from Cameron’s American Bistro and the Tenderloin at Martini Modern Italian. When he’s not in the restaurant, he enjoys cars, motorcycles, dirt bikes, ATVs, attending festivals and political activism. Seemann resides in Gahanna with his wife, Kathryn, and their son, Elum.
