Richard Snyder joined the Buccini/Pollin Group in 2019 as Director of Food and Beverage where he oversees operations for the company’s various hospitality projects, such as Starbucks, I.M. Coffee, DeCo and Maker’s Alley. His focus is on the continued success of these and other locations under the BPG umbrella and the integral role hospitality plays in the revitalization of Wilmington.
Prior to moving to Delaware, Richard worked in and around New York City, where he contributed to the success of Michelin-starred restaurants, award-winning craft-cocktail bars, 3rd wave coffee shops, breweries, and New York and Hamptons lounges, including such varied establishments as the Hard Rock Café, Employee’s Only, and his own SoHo restaurant, Goblin Market, which was selected as a Time Out New York Best New Restaurant. As a resident and business operator, Richard witnessed firsthand the redevelopment successes of the East Village / Lower East Side, Brooklyn and Jersey City which afforded him a unique vantage point to hospitality’s role as a driving force in bringing economic and cultural vitality to struggling urban areas.
Mr. Snyder received his Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting from Drexel University. He currently is a proud member of the Delaware Restaurant Association.
