In this episode, Steve sits down with Mike Reppe Owner of "Rep's Place Sports Bar & Grill in Rolling Meadows, IL. www.repsplace.com After just over a year in business Rep's has proven to be a local favorite. Not only did Mike and the staff open with local praise, they more than doubled the space with an expansion into the space next door within the first year. We talk about the things leading up today, past jobs, lessons in the industry, and some missteps along the way. Up until recently Rolling Meadows really hasn't had its own hangout place, people have usually had to go out to neighboring towns to find cool places to go. Knowing this, After over 25 years in the industry, it was a simple choice for Mike to open up back home with a traditional sports bar. If f you're in the NW Burbs of Chicago, stop by Rep's. My advice, try the peanut butter burger. You're welcome.
