Santino has been a loyal employee of Tap House Grill for the last 10 years, and we can’t think of a better way to reward his service and dedication to the brand than to promote him to franchise owner of our Plainfield location.

Tap House Grill Addictive Food/Creative Brews, a successful bar and restaurant franchise founded by spirited entrepreneurs and successful Chicago restaurateurs, announces an employee promotion to franchisee at its Plainfield location.

Local Oswego resident Santino Patragas has worked with Tap House Grill for nearly a decade and most recently served in capacity of managing partner. He started out as a host, moved to server and then on to general manager.

After building a career in the restaurant industry, Patragas decided he wanted a job that was a better fit for his entrepreneurial aspirations. TapHouse Founders Mark Zych and Robert Scott Ward agreed.

As the new owner of the Plainfield location, Patragas is responsible for maintaining the quality and service standards established by the Tap House Grill corporate office. In addition, he will handle all operational and marketing aspects of running his own bar and restaurant franchise.

“What better way to expand our business than through our own Tap House family,” Ward said. “Santino has been a loyal employee of Tap House Grill for the last 10 years, and we can’t think of a better way to reward his service and dedication to the brand than to promote him to franchise owner of our Plainfield location.”

Launched in 2006, Tap House Grill Addictive Food/Creative Brews has multiple bar and restaurant franchise locations across the Chicago suburbs and several franchise agreements in the works. Executives created the Tap House Grill Franchise Group this year to provide thorough training, support and marketing guidance for franchise owners and operators.
