We are not your typical restaurant group, but we are your typical family. A little dysfunction and a lot of heart.
In 2002, collegemates Brian Bogert & Manny Leclercq decided it was time to “stop working for the man” and leave their corporate desk jobs to pursue the dream of opening up their own restaurant. As two guys in their early 20’s with little experience and without a fear in the world, they set a course to open their first business in Brian’s home state of Oklahoma. After falling on their face a time or twenty, somewhere in the hustle they found a way to make a living doing what they love.
Brian’s knack for entertaining and Manny’s attention to detail helped build a restaurant group and culture that defines the social guest experience. Hence, The Social Order Dining Collective was born.
Nine restaurants later and nearly 600 employees stronger they are still having the time of their life.
