There's No "I" In Team.

When Christian 'the Boss' Rinehart decided that he wanted to change the world 14 years ago, he knew that he was going to need help realizing his vision. The young entrepenuer called on his long​-​time friend and former co-worker, Jay 'the Conqueror' Waldeck, to build his O'Donold​'​s Irish Pub into a household name.  Together they were successful in creating Ohio's Largest St. Patrick's Day 12 years in a row!

After several address changes in an effort to find more space for the enthusiastic patrons of the area watering hole, they zeroed in on a spacious location in Austintown, Ohio. Several years of solidifying the service and quality of the pub finally led way to ideas of a second location in the bright prospect of Downtown Youngstown. Similar success ensued and the two gentle giants were beside themselves​ with pride of what they were able to accomplish in a relatively short amount of time.

Fully immersed in not only one, but two wildly successful restaurants would probably be more than enough to satisfy a mere mortal... but the story doesn't end here. No, this is just the beginning...
