Chris first started in Chicago working at a Mexican restaurant and then moved to Champagne, Illinois for six years where he worked in variety of different restaurants like Italian, American and Japanese. When Chris got married in 2005, he decided he wanted to start his own business so he opened a fast food restaurant on the South side of Chicago in University Park. After two and a half years he sold the restaurant and moved to Elgin, Illinois where he then opened the Golden Skillet Family Restaurant. The first year of business was challenging in a new location, but with hard work and perseverance the Golden Skillet eventually became a favorite within the community.
