He Keeps Us All In Check

Scott Weiner was born and raised in the Chicago area. As a teenager, he tied on an apron and worked the counter at his local fast food joint. Unlike most teenagers, though, he ran with it.

After high school, he headed to Las Vegas to immerse himself in the service industry. When he wasn't studying for his hospitality degree in college, he worked for China Grill Management and also earned his sommelier license through the Court of Master Sommeliers. By the time he was done with Vegas, he had moved into developing menus and wine programs and had thoroughly tested out Sin City's nightlife.

Once back in Chicago, Scott went downtown to manage Joe's Seafood, Prime Steak & Stone Crab. At Joe's, Scott met Greg Mohr, and their business partnership was off and running. In 2008, they opened The Fifty/50 and followed that up a few years later by opening up Roots Handmade Pizza as well as a few other concepts.

At Roots, Scott works with the back-of-house and makes sure everything tastes incredible. But enough about Scott,  let’s meet Greg.
