Joe and Jenner Rasic, the owners of Craftsman restaurants, have been residents in Orange County since 1992. They are both thrilled to give back to the community they love.
As a kid, Joe could always be found in the kitchen, both at his dad’s restaurant and at home. Food is always best when shared with family and friends and, coming from a large family, Joe learned early on how to provide for large groups. Joe was inspired by those parties and created the Craftsman concept that friends and family would love.
Jenner has taught at Golden Elementary in Placentia for the past 22 years. With over 600 kids experiencing her classroom, she is often recognized around town. When not continuing her work with PYLUSD, Jenner will be working the dining room, visiting with students and families.
Ryan was born and raised in Orange County with over 25 years experience in full-service restaurants. Starting in the industry as a prep cook and working his way up through the ranks of various leadership positions, Ryan has a true passion for hospitality.
Ryan has had the pleasure of knowing Joe for over 15 years as both a coworker and friend. Since joining the industry, Ryan’s dream was to have ownership in a concept that he truly believes in. Becoming a part of the Craftsman family brought Ryan and his family back to Orange County and is allowing him to fulfill that dream.
One of his greatest joys away from the restaurant is spending time with family and friends. Married to his high school sweetheart and father to two amazing kids, you will typically find them entertaining large groups at home.
