As the On The Table event at Seed & Bean Market began, so did the conversation on the development of downtown Fort Myers. Bob Megazzini, general manager of the Luminary Hotel spoke on the behalf of the soon to be hotel, the progress of the project and the economic impact it will bring to our community.
“The building is on schedule to open in August of next year ” Bob said.
Bob went on to share that the hotel will be hiring about 250 people for positions ranging from cooks to servers, managers, supervisors, front desk clerks, and housekeeping.
Cole Peacock, founder of Seed & Bean Market asks Bob, “What drove you to downtown Fort Myers?”.
The three main reasons for Bob’s move to downtown Fort Myers was the company and the leaders he works for, the amount of restaurant opportunity and the charm of Fort Myers.
“I grew up in a small town, Springfield Massachusetts, very similar to Fort Myers and it just feels like home here and I’ve only been here for 3 months. It’s just a great community that I want to be a part of.” said Bob.
Mike Flanders, President & CEO of Edison Ford Winter Estates and former city councilman, chimed in
“as the project is evolved and now being built, being a multi-use, multi-layered idea, I think it’s a great fit. That’s what downtown is really all about.”
Founder, Cole Peacock, then spoke at our first On The Table event on behalf of Seed & Bean Market as he explained our unique concept.

“-when you see the city manager, county commissioner, or city council person, sheriff deputy or police officer, having lunch and having conversations about ‘my dogs’ anxiety’ well we can help you out.” -Cole Peacock, Founder of Seed & Bean Market
