Sammamish residents Rich Radcliffe and Paul Wedeberg announced the appointment of new CEO, Sammamish resident Mitch Parrish. Parrish was brought on as the third member of a trio to manage strategy, operations and marketing for their Issaquah and Sammamish restaurants: Uncle Si’s (Sammamish and Issaquah), Uncle Samm’s Lounge and Katie’s on the Lake (Sammamish).

“We are excited to introduce Katie’s to our community in a big way” says Parrish. This introduction includes the renaming of Uncle Si’s Pizza, Uncle Samm’s Lounge and Katie’s on the Lake to: Katie’s, The Bar at Katie’s and Katie’s Lakeside, named after Radcliff’s teenage daughter.

The Uncle Si’s Pizza on Snoqualmie Ridge, which opened in 2003, will not be part of the name change.

In addition to the other restaurants’ name change, customers can expect updated décor including brick, stucco and wood walls, new lighting and finishing touches throughout, creating a noteworthy and distinct ambiance for each restaurant.

The Grand-Re-Opening is slated for December, and will will include activities for kids, live entertainment and free giveaways. Katie’s plans to partner with a local charity and donate a percentage of proceeds raised during the events.

Radcliffe opened Uncle Si’s Pizza locations in Sammamish and Issaquah in 2016. He introduced Uncle Samm’s Lounge and Katie’s on the Lake, in late 2016. With Katie’s opening its doors just last February, a tucked back location and solely word-of mouth marketing, “many residents just don’t know we are here. We have yet to have our Grand-Opening, so we see this as the perfect opportunity.”

Katie’s plans on communicating the transformation over the next six weeks via social media as well as reaching out to the residents directly.

Uncle Si’s, Uncle Samm’s Lounge and Katie’s on the Lake are located at 3310 E. Lake Sammamish Parkway, Sammamish, WA 98074.
