It all started when...

The Chandi Group began, like any good restaurant story, as a fifteen year-old Sonu worked the line during the Friday night dinner rush. Three years later, the Chandi brothers helped their father open up his own restaurant. There they cut their teeth negotiating leases, managing vendors, building a team, gaining the experience, and growing the excitement that would cement their decision to own their own hospitality group.

In 2007, the Chandi Group purchased their first restaurant, a Mountain Mike’s Pizza in Rohnert Park. Still in college and with little guidance from the corporate offices, they learned their lessons - from scheduling to handling to every other aspect of owning a franchise - the hard way. And, the right way. Since then, they’ve become the Northern California Mountain Mike’s Development Agent, opening six new locations, with one on the way, and piloting the Mountain Mike’s Tavern concept, which brought a full bar experience into the family friendly atmosphere.

Along the way, Ren joined the team, and family, helping guide them as they branched out into independent restaurants. Together, they took over Stout Brothers Irish Pub and Restaurant two days before St. Patrick’s Day in 2013. The success of Stout’s and the vibrancy of downtown Santa Rosa has propelled them into two more restaurants, Bibi’s Burger Bar and County Bench, with Beer Baron on the way.

Though it all, the Chandi Group has been guided by their deep-rooted commitment to their community, to their work, integrity, and their philosophy of continuous improvement. At every step, they’ve challenged themselves to learn and grow, and strive to always be better.
