July 31, 2018 – VR Business Brokers of Dallas TX, a leader in the sale of privately held companies,
recently facilitated the sale of Rye Restaurant, located in down town McKinney, TX.
Rye (http://www.ryemckinney.com/), a craft gastropub, originally opened in November 2015 to
great reviews for its unique American classics with regional touches, as well as wine and craft
cocktails, in a historic building that once served as the law office of former Texas Governor
James W. Throckmorton back in the 1860’s.
The business has now been purchased by Tanner Agar and Nick Cain. Nick and Tanner both have
experience in strategy and brand development in the restaurant industry.
“We are extremely excited to acquire Rye to our business concept, centered around creating a
community gathering place serving the finest regional food with wine and craft cocktails”, says
The new owners assumed possession of the business on July 1, 2018. They are excited to continue
the tradition of providing the first class service and products that the community has been receiving
