The quintessential entrepreneur, Grant Cooper was raised in Europe, educated in the United States and found his perfect business partner in Charles Clark in 1995. If he has a muse, it’s the world he has created in the duo’s ever-expanding restaurants. “Driven” best describes Cooper, who is always juggling ideas for new concepts, and always striving to stay current. “Seventy-five percent” is his mantra, meaning there are at least a handful of concepts always incubating, and always striving to be current. It’s 24/7 with this guy, equally known for his discipline, business acumen and sophisticated west coast, rock ‘n roll sense of style. Cooper understands the need to build restaurants that impart an experience.
