DISCOVERY’s unique and demanding vision for its restaurants and event facilities resulted in the need of a dedicated restaurant team with experience in the boutique bowling, restaurant, and live entertainment industries. There is none more qualified with the unique blend of experience than Trifecta Management Group.
Trifecta Management Group® (TMG), founded in 2005, provides innovative concepts, comprehensive management services and value added solutions/systems to the restaurant and retail entertainment industries.
The founders and managing partners of TMG, Ron Lam, Bruce Nussbaum and Michael Auger, comprised the executive management team and the strategic, operational and development nucleus at GameWorks, the acclaimed restaurant and interactive entertainment concept founded by Steven Spielberg, Universal Studios and Sega.
TMG’s senior management team includes Tony Penn, Chief Operating Officer, who has held senior executive positions with Buca Di Beppo and Outback Steakhouse, Jill Mather, Partner, a renowned management and training expert and Mike Long, an industry veteran who has vast experiences in executive management and owning his own venues.

Known for creating some of the restaurant industry’s most dynamic concepts and brands, this team is also recognized for delivering superior operational performance and execution, and for structuring “win-win” deals with developers and other partners. TMG works closely with partners to develop unique concepts in formats 5,000 to 100,000 square feet, providing a compelling anchor to multi-faceted projects or free-standing destinations.
TMG has quickly become recognized for excellence with its custom concepts in both the entertainment and restaurant industries, including the acclaimed The Corner Alley® and 4th Street Bar & Grill, a unique complex featuring 16 lanes of rock ‘n bowling, two sleek martini bars and a stylish restaurant serving Americana cuisine, and Zocalo Mexican Grill and Tequileria, Pizzeria Villagio, Mestizo (by Celebrity Chef Aarón Sánchez) and their newest facility, Uptown Alley (link – 60,000 sq ft. multi-platform entertainment destination).
