Kevin Clay

Kevin Clay, Owner

As a hospitality veteran, Kevin has managed coffeeshops, waited tables, and tended bar. With this background, he infuses a service-first marketing approach into all of his work. His fresh perspective flows from his passion for building and infusing the right details into his projects. A serial entrepreneur, Kevin built GayRVA.com, Virginia’s first news website for the LGBT community, before selling the company in 2013. In addition, he is a champion of all things local to Richmond, and is frequently asked to contribute to local media events and political councils. 

 
Ryan Evans

Ryan Evans, Account Manager

Ryan’s work with Big Spoon Co. follows a 15-year culinary career that he began as a teenager sorting crabs at a family friend’s roadside stand. He knows food and the needs of the people who make it, drawing on rich experience in management roles in some of Richmond’s best kitchens, years spent in a bakery, and as a cheesemonger, among others. He learned as much about the trials of business ownership as he did cuisine along the way, and is passionate about that putting that knowledge to work for you.
