Meet the Chandi Hospitality Group

The Chandi Hospitality Group was fast to accept an annual sponsorship proposal from Professional Marketing Group-North Bay (PMG), in support of our mission to Educate, Connect and Inspire the regions marketing professionals. We are extremely grateful and would like to take this moment to thank them for all they do to encourage growth in the North Bay!

Who is the Chandi Hospitality Group?

The Chandi Hospitality Group began, like any good restaurant story, in the imagination of fifteen year-old Sonu Chandi while working the line during a Friday night dinner rush. Three years later, the Chandi brothers, Sonu, Joti and Sunny, helped their father, Gurcharan Singh Chandi, open his own restaurant. There they cut their teeth negotiating leases, managing vendors, building a team, and gaining experience.

In 2007, the Chandi Group purchased their first restaurant, a Mountain Mike’s Pizza in Rohnert Park. Still in college and with little guidance from the corporate offices, Sonu and his brothers learned their lessons – from scheduling to handling to every other aspect of owning a franchise – the hard way. And, the right way. Since then, they’ve become the Northern California Mountain Mike’s Development Agent, opening six new locations, with one on the way, and piloting the Mountain Mike’s Tavern concept, which brought a full bar experience into the family friendly atmosphere.

Along the way, Ren joined the team, and family, helping guide them as they branched out into independent restaurants. Together, they took over Stout Brothers Irish Pub & Restaurant two days before St. Patrick’s Day in 2013. The success of Stout’s and the vibrancy of downtown Santa Rosa has propelled them into two more restaurants, Bibi’s Burger Bar and Beer Baron.

Through it all, the Chandi Group has been guided by their deep-rooted commitment to their community, to their work, integrity, and their philosophy of continuous improvement. At every step, they’ve challenged themselves to learn and grow, and strive to always be better.

Community Involvement

Recently awarded 2018 Small Business of the Year by the Santa Rosa Metro Chamber of Commerce, the Chandi Group is dedicated to doing everything they can to support their community.

As you may have heard, Chandi Hospitality Group was one of many businesses directly affected by last year’s wildfires. Mountain Mike’s on Cleveland Avenue was lost in the fire, but the Chandi Group immediately set out to complete debris clean up and launched their new venture, Chandi Development Group, which will focus on rebuilding Sonoma County.

Today, Chandi Hospitality Group is an active community-focused business, channeling profits, service and food to local charities and organizations, including: Active 20-30 Club, Chop’s Teen Club, SOS Community Counseling, the Human Race, Center For Well-Being, and Social Advocates for Youth, the Boys & Girls Clubs, The Living Room, The Center for Wellbeing, 4Cs and more. The Chandi Group has also contributed funding to programs at SRJC, SSU, and several local public schools. In honor of their grandmother, Bibi’s Education Foundation encourages and inspires young men and women to reach their education goals.
