Scott Kammerer, president of Rehoboth Beach-based hospitality group SoDel Concepts, recently announced that Ryan Cunningham has joined the company as the executive chef at the Clubhouse at Baywood in Millsboro, one of SoDel Concepts’ 10 restaurants along the coast in Sussex County.

“Ryan is a well-known chef at the Delaware beaches, and not just because he was born and raised in Lewes,” said Kammerer. “He’s respected for his talent, teamwork and professionalism.”

A graduate of Cape Henlopen High School, Cunningham received a degree in culinary arts from Johnson & Wales University in Rhode Island. He’s worked with some of the leading chefs and cutting-edge restaurateurs in Sussex County.

“I’ve had the pleasure of being with SoDel Concepts’ culinary team at fundraisers, and I’ve admired their spirit of collaboration and their skill,” Cunningham said. “I’m honored to be part of the company and work alongside them.”

Danielle Panarello, director of operations at the Clubhouse at Baywood, is pleased to have Cunningham on board. “With his background and experience, he can capably handle our popular restaurant, our many wine dinners and our busy event schedule,” she said.

The Clubhouse at Baywood has frequently been named a top wedding event venue in the state.

Cunningham lives in Lewes with his two sons.
