Matt Cooper, General Manager

After 28 years in hospitality, most in the hustle and bustle of the Bay Area, new general manager Matt Cooper (and his wife and four kids) think it’s pretty cool to have recently relocated to Cool.

“A 35-minute commute to Roseville, to a restaurant full of genuinely nice people, working for people who care about quality and their staff? It was an easy decision for us to make the move,” said Matt.

After several lengthy interviews, we knew Matt was just the right combination of experience, personality, and talent to manage the day-to-day operations of 105 Noshery and are thrilled the Cooper family has now become part of ours.

We couldn’t imagine a more perfect fit, someone with decades of experience to deal with any situation that may arise, a drive to learn, and a cheery disposition that makes it immediately obvious that he cares about people.

“I thought I had experience, but Randy and Lisa put me to shame! And when I saw Jerry Garcia and Bob Marley on the walls, I knew I was in the right place,” he said.

The addition of Matt to our staff frees up the rest of the management team to dive deeper into their areas of expertise. He is responsible for the entire operation at 105 Noshery, from staffing to kitchen operations to the customer experience. We love that he makes a point of visiting each table and know you will, too.

“I’m here to make people happy and, when you talk to them, you find out that most are having a really great time!”

After his first few weeks, he’s enjoying getting to know our team and menu, meeting all of you, and he’s eager to put his touch on our vision for what we want 105 Noshery to be for you – your go-to for quality food, drink, and entertainment. He’s here five days a week so be sure to say hello. Remember, you won’t have to track him down. He’ll be stopping by your table.

Have a suggestion? Matt wants to hear from you! 

What he orders: Soup and salad (“Believe it or not, good soup and salad is hard to find. Chef Eric clearly understands that people eat with their eyes. Our salad tastes and looks good. And that tomato soup…”

What he’s drinking: Kamikaze
