Chicago-Area Gastro-Pub Launches Franchise Expansion Program

Tap House Grill Addictive Food/Creative Brews, an eclectic gastro-pub with a unique twist on American comfort food and an exclusive, rotating selection of local craft beers on tap, launched its new franchise program to be rolled out in Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin, and Michigan, with national expansion to follow. 

Launched in 2006, Tap House Grill has seven locations across the Chicago suburbs and several franchise agreements in the works. “We have been developing our imaginative concept for a decade and are now primed to aggressively grow our brand through franchising,” says founder Scott Ward.”

With 50 years of combined experience in restaurant management and restaurant operations, founders Scott Ward and Mark Zych have opened and developed dozens of restaurants. The two worked together at Bar Louie, where Ward served as Chief Operating Officer for more than a decade. 

“There is a high demand for craft beer and it is still growing,” says Zych. “Tap House Grill aims to match the creativity and quality of craft brewers with an inventive menu. That’s how we became known for addictive food and creative brews.” 

Tap House Grill Addictive Food/Creative Brews is designed to capitalize on the growth in the craft beer market, providing franchisees with a strong support system and customers with a welcoming environment and food and drink that delivers on the concept’s tagline.

“We believe the collective experience of our executive team and the products, service and philosophy of Tap House Grill provide us an unparalleled foundation,” adds Ward. “We are looking for franchisees who embrace this concept and are dedicated to providing customers with a totally satisfying experience.”
