Pearl Restaurant Group - a different approach to restaurant franchising

Pearl Restaurant Group was founded in 1992 by Jim Sullivan and Jan Fabry. The partnership began with their first venture, which was renovating the Mug Ale House in Rye, NY and transforming it into The Rye Grill and Bar.

Pearl Restaurant Group currently owns and operates seven restaurants in the Westchester and Fairfield area: The Rye Grill & Bar, Ruby's Oyster Bar & Bistro and Morgans Fish House, all in Rye, NY; Lexington Square Cafe, in Mt. Kisco, NY; The Tap House in Tuckahoe, NY; and the Elm Street Oyster House and Ten Twenty Post located in Greenwich, CT and Darien, CT, respectively.

One of the keys to Pearl's restaurant success is a hands-on managing partner at each location, who owns a share of the restaurant they manage. This management structure ensures there is someone on-site who has a vested interest in the success of the restaurant.

Another key is the experience the managing partners bring to their restaurants. All have worked in the restaurant business for many years, most of whom worked within the company in staff positions before becoming managing partners.

A transformation that launches a business

After the transformation of The Rye Grill into a successful enterprise, Jan and Jim felt they could take their talents, expertise and philosophy to other restaurants in the area. There followed a series of successful restaurants redesigns and launches. In 1993 they opened Lexington Square café in Mt. Kisco, NY, followed by Elm Street Oyster House in Greenwich, CT. Immediately following Elm Street in 1995, the partners found an incredible space in Scarsdale, NY and began construction. Heathcote Tavern opened in 1996 and maintained continued success for 10 years, until the property was sold.

In 2001, after a break from openings and many more years of experience behind them, the partners opened their second location in Rye, Ruby's Oyster Bar and Bistro. The last three restaurants followed, beginning in 2007 with Morgans Fish House in Rye, followed by The Tap House in Tuckahoe, and finally Ten Twenty Post in Darien, CT in 2008.

Seven restaurants – like pearls – all different, yet very much the same

The restaurants do not share an identical menu, layout or décor as is the case with most restaurant franchises. Some, like the Rye Grill are spacious and can hold hundreds of people. Others, like the Elm Street Oyster House, are small and intimate. However, they do share many similar attributes. The restaurants all have a comfortable, casual neighborhood feel with interiors that incorporate wood paneling, wall paper and molded ceilings. The restaurants have moderately priced menus and lack pretentiousness in terms of food, service or attitude. And as you may notice many specialize in oysters, hence Pearl Restaurant Group became an obvious choice for the business name.
