My employment at Citizen Bar in River North began in December 2008. I was hired as an Assistant Manager with a promise of partnership if I produced positive results. In 2011, that partnership was delivered and I became Managing Partner.
At Citizen we achieved a notorious reputation as an outdoor entertainment destination through earned marketing efforts. Our ability to serve and connect with the community established a profitable and respected Citizen Bar brand in the River North community for a decade.
In addition to the above methods, much of our success can be attributed to the content direction on our social media channels, website, blog & email marketing efforts. The ops were launched during the birth of Social Media for businesses (2008) giving me a unique ground level perspective.
During my time at Citizen, I oversaw: Company cash flow, Account Management, P&L, Food/Liquor cost, Marketing direction, Media production, FOH Management (GM, AGM, HR Manager, Kitchen Manager, Event Planner), Building Maintenace, City/State Licensing, Insurance & Legal responsibilities.
