Drayton Mills Event Space Relaunched as Eighteen Hundred Drayton

Former Larkin’s Restaurant Group executive to lead catering & events venue


Spartanburg, S.C. (Aug. 08, 2019) – The event space at Drayton Mills has expanded as Eighteen Hundred Drayton Catering & Events, an evolution that will keep pace with the growing demand for the exceptional venue in Spartanburg County.

In July, Bob Munnich, formerly of the Larkin’s Restaurant Group, signed a lease to assume the operation, management and become master chef of the venue, formerly Events at Drayton Mills. Munnich’s success has always been firmly rooted in his belief that the best ingredients make the best food, and happy team members make happy guests.

“I have always appreciated all that Spartanburg has to offer,” Munnich said. “Having been the Food & Beverage Director at the Country Club of Spartanburg in the early 2000s, I really bonded with the city. I am excited to see the changes and development, and can’t wait to be a part of Spartanburg’s growth.”

“Spartanburg County is the 19th fastest growing metropolitan area in the country,” Munnich added. “That tremendous growth is fueling a demand for high-quality events, programming and culinary excellence. We believe this further investment in the event space at Drayton will help exceed people’s expectations.”
