The post-COVID bounce back is in full swing at Scottsdale-based entertainment concept Mavrix. Following an increased demand for family entertainment in Q2, the bowling and gaming venue has hired Dallas Henderson as its new general manager and Scott Nelson as its executive chef. Mavrix also promoted Jason Brothers from operations manager to assistant general manager.
Mavrix, located off the 101 and Talking Stick Way, is owned by Scottsdale-based Octane Entertainment, which also owns next door indoor-outdoor go-kart track and entertainment venue Octane Raceway. Mavrix opened on March 7, 2020, mere days before a government mandate forced the venue to shut down as a COVID-19 precaution. These new hires signal a strong bounce back from the pandemic, allowing the concept to grow and thrive as we move into the post-COVID era.
â€œFollowing a tough start due to the pandemic shutdown, we can confidently say that Mavrix will thrive in 2021 with the hiring of these two industry professionals,â€ said Scott Sanders, CEO of Octane Entertainment. â€œDallas and Scott bring a wealth of knowledge in their fields, and we couldnâ€™t be more excited to have them on board as our concept grows.â€
Henderson is a familiar face to the service industry in Phoenix and brings experience as a director of operations for a bowling venue and operating partner and regional manager of a local restaurant chain.
Chef Nelson is a former corporate chef and currently operates as a consulting executive chef for many Valley restaurants. In his new role at Mavrix, Nelson will be granted extensive creative freedom to craft a made-from-scratch menu of Mavrixâ€™s hearth oven pizzas, inventive apps and delicious entrees.
Jason Brothers, who joined the Mavrix team in 2020, has been promoted to assistant general manager. Brothersâ€™ experience as general manager and front-of-house supervisor for bowling concepts make him a tremendous asset to the Octane Entertainment team.
Mavrix is hiring additional talent to join its growing concept, including servers, bartenders, cooks and more. To apply, visit http://www.mavrix.com/careers.
