Wogan brings over a decade of hospitality and food and beverage experience to the growing food hall
INDIANAPOLIS (March 11, 2022) – Geronimo Hospitality Group and The Garage Food Hall has named Caralyn Wogan as general manager of The Garage Food Hall, the 30,000 square-foot marketplace in the heart of the bustling Bottleworks District in downtown Indianapolis.
Wogan has over 13 years of hospitality and food and beverage experience and an extensive knowledge of the Indy food scene that will help her maintain the reputation of The Garage while growing its following and tenants. As general manager her duties and responsibilities will include managing employees, onboarding new vendors and ensuring guest satisfaction.
“I’m thrilled to be part of the Bottleworks team, and I can’t wait to help continue to make this district thrive through the diverse culinary experiences found at The Garage,” said Wogan. “I’m ready to connect guests with the vendors of the food hall and give garage goers an experience unlike any other.”
Wogan is an Indianapolis native who began her career with White Lodging, where she held positions managing both hotel and food and beverage departments and has managerial experience in free-standing restaurants, culinary operations, housekeeping and guest services. Prior to joining The Garage, Wogan was employed by Coury Hospitality as the general manager of food and beverage operations for Hotel Carmichael in Carmel, Indiana, where she was responsible for all food and beverage and banquet operations. She’s also served as the general manager for Sprouts Cooking School in Carmel.
“Caralyn has a strong sense for what Indy locals and visitors are looking for in their dining experience,” said Jeff Whiteman, Chief Operating Office for Geronimo Hospitality Group. “We couldn’t be happier to have her on our team and for her to continue to grow the garage into one of the best attractions the city has to offer.”
The Garage Food Hall is home to more than 20 food, beverage and retail vendors. It’s just one facet of the $300 million Bottleworks District development that transformed an iconic Coca-Cola bottling plant into a culinary hub in downtown Indianapolis.
