Ryan’s has appointed Kristi Galanek as manager of the South Yarmouth location.
Galanek takes over from Peter Campbell, who will resume the role of Manager of Bowling Operations for all of Ryan’s centers.
Galanek comes to the role with a corporate background in sales, marketing and communications. She spent seven years as the Director of Marketing with Homes for Our Troops, a nonprofit organization that builds adaptive homes for injured veterans. Her strong passion for veterans moved her to create a veteran’s charity bowling tournament at Ryan’s held around Veterans Day. Last year the event raised $6,000 for the Massachusetts Military Support Foundation.
Galanek, who was raised in Marshfield and received a bachelor’s degree in Communications from Boston University, is a longtime resident of Sandwich.
“Ryan’s has been a second home to me for the past several years. When I was given the opportunity to manage this amazing center, I jumped at the chance. I am beyond thrilled to join this team, this organization and most importantly, this amazing family entertainment center,” said Galanek. “The time and energy that the organization is putting in to making Ryan’s in Yarmouth a destination is exciting.”
Ryan’s South Yarmouth center is in the midst of a multi-phase remodel. The center was recently expanded by 8,000-square-feet into the adjacent area that had been occupied by a racquetball club. New features include axe throwing, indoor cornhole, a larger arcade, a second satellite bar and more function space. New flooring has also been installed in the bowling lanes and the exterior of the building is currently being remodeled. Enhancements to the restaurant and expanded food offerings are slated for later this year. The final phase calls for construction of the currently unused second floor, which will provide space for functions and parties.
