Your name & title at the company
Mark Domitrovich, Owner of Pioneer Tavern Group
What does your company do?
Pioneer Tavern Group owns and operates Frontier in West Town, Ina Mae Tavern & Packaged Goods in Wicker Park, and Lottie’s Pub in Bucktown.
Tell us about your company’s journey:
Ina Mae was brought to life with the help of my business partner and co-owner of Ina Mae Tavern, Chef Brian Jupiter. Chef Jup was born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana and always wanted to bring his take on Southern cooking to Chicago. When we found the perfect old corner store location, we knew it was the right fit for Ina Mae, and something the neighborhood needed.
What has been your company’s greatest success?
Our greatest success has been seeing how receptive our local community and tourists alike have been to Ina Mae Tavern. We have a wide variety of guests, some being neighbors that stop in for a drink and a bite a few times every week, and others being out-of-towners looking to enjoy Chef Jup’s cooking.
Do you have special quarantine hours?
Curbside pickup/delivery? Closed Monday; 4-10:00pm Tuesday-Thursday; 4pm-1am Friday; 11am-1am Saturday; 11am-10pm Sunday; We have several pick-up and delivery packages available which rotate often
What are your company’s goals for 2021?
We’re hoping the city of Chicago can safely continue to expand our indoor capacity and go back to “normal” as soon as it’s safe to do so. We really want to give our guests the experiences that they may have missed last year, and continue to offer high quality food, strong drinks, and unmatched hospitality
