How Gatsby's Joint Came to Be

Gatsby’s Joint is owned by Elaine Krieger.



Elaine Krieger, has owned and has operated multiple retail franchised locations in Chicago, Illinois for over 18 years and currently resides in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.  Elaine was the 2011 U.S. Small Business Entrepreneur of the Year and received this award from President Obama.   Being a total foodie and having a similar passion for cooking, but most importantly, loving The Roaring Twenties music and dancing (yes, Elaine loves to Swing and Foxtrot!) and always wanting to open a restaurant, Elaine started to really entertain the idea of opening a restaurant.  A year later - Gatsby's Joint was opened!
