JAC’s Bar & Grill has opened in Chatfield, Minn. Jeff and Candi Hare opened their new business beginning October 1, 2012. The business is located in the former TaCade’s building on Main Street in Chatfield. Jeff and Candi have been very busy, working full-time, to get the business up and running. Candi stated, “It has been a fun and learning experience getting things ready.”

It has been a lifelong dream of Jeff’s to open a restaurant, and when he and Candi got married in 2009, it became a shared dream. The name JAC’S comes from shortening and combining the owners names, Jeff and Candi.

JAC’s specializes in burgers, of which they have 14 to choose from, and wraps. Breakfast is offered every day and the new owners have brought back cranberry French toast by popular demand. JAC’s offers daily specials as well. On Friday nights they hold a fish fry, and Sundays the special is all you can eat broasted chicken. There is also a happy hour Monday through Friday from 3:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. with drink specials.

JAC’s will hold a Grand Opening along with a Halloween party on October 27, 2012, with a DJ from 8:00 p.m. to midnight. The owners plan on having DJs and Karaoke on a regular basis for customers to enjoy. The couple plans on employing 12-15 people.

Jeff and Candi, who live in Chatfield, are very excited about their new business and want people to know that JAC’s Bar & Grill is owner-operated, so they will be there to greet their customers the majority of the time. They have both quit their previous jobs and are dedicated to making their business a success with their goal being that everyone leaves happy. Jeff’s motto is “We want people to have to go home, not want to go home.”
