Who: Scott Wise, 37, @BrewHouse
What: Scotty's Brew House
When: At age 22, Wise opened his first bar and restaurant in his hometown in 1996.
Why: Wise describes his path to becoming a restaurant owner as "typical," after working his way up from a dishwasher to server in college.
"There was a bar for sale in my hometown in a good location, and I just thought it would be cool to own my own bar," he said. From there, the business grew and 15 years later has eight locations across Indiana.
Where: Scotty's is headquartered in Indianapolis, Ind.
In his own words: "I don't like to say it was all luck, I think you create your own luck. I had a lot of great people around me," Wise said. "We are up to 1,000 employees and are continuing to grow in a time when the world is upside down."
