About The Fifty/50 Restaurant Group

Creative. Driven. Forward thinking.

A Brief History

Since 2008, The Fifty/50 Restaurant Group is a fun-loving group of individuals responsible for creating several diverse restaurant and bar concepts across Chicago. Through hard work and innovation by the principals and partners, the group either owns or manages 14 establishments with more on the way since its inception less than 10 years ago.

The founding of The Fifty/50 Restaurant Group was the result of the partnership between Scott Weiner and Greg Mohr, who became great friends and coworkers in 2003 when they began working together while with Lettuce Entertain You. In 2007, as Chicago was about to implement a smoking ban in bars and restaurants, the duo recognized an opportunity to bring higher quality food and service into a sports bar environment. Subsequently they found themselves at the forefront of Chicago’s growing restaurant and bar movement.

Since then, they’ve invested in growing neighborhoods and communities across Chicago to become fixtures with unique concepts such as Roots Pizza and West Town Bakery while building a great company culture and infrastructure which has allowed them to successfully maintain their rapid expansion.

The Fifty/50 Restaurant Group has become one of Chicago’s fastest growing restaurant groups due to their amazing people who go above and beyond as well as the hard working and dedicated partners who constantly push to be the best in their field. We look forward to opening more restaurants and being great neighbors to you and your community.

Our Philosophy

The basic premise is simple: We strive to take care of our people first. We strive to be the best as a team, but we need a team that supports all of the individual players so that they can one day become superstars. The next priority is a mission to treasure our guests, then to focus on our community, our suppliers, and investors. We strive to create and maintain a positive environment that is constant in its growth. We aim to pass on that positive energy to our guests’ dining experience. That’s how we ensure our guests leave feeling better about their day and the money that they spend with us… so they’ll do it over again.

Loyalty

With close to 50,000 active loyalty members in Chicago, the Fifty/50 Restaurant Group has one of the most dynamic and loyal followings across neighborhoods all across the city. It is our mission to always find ways to give back to our loyal customers and give thanks for their incredible support these past years.
