Rick McCormack’s career in hospitality design started as a draftsman with a small boutique
design firm and over the course of 15 years he ultimately became a Vice President/Partner in
the firm. In 1995 he was invited by David Overton, the owner of the Cheesecake Factory, to
join his young company as Director of Design and establish an in-house design department.
During his 13 plus years at the Cheesecake Factory he was responsible for overseeing the
creation of over 150 successful restaurants nationwide including the development of their
Grand Lux Café and RockSugar concepts. In 2008 he resigned as Vice President of Design to
start up his own design firm, Richard McCormack Design, now STUDIO M c C O R M A C K.
