- Restaurants, Food, & Beverages
Donnie Moore grew up in Oglesby, IL where his parents founded the Rootbeer Stand. Eager to pursue a career in the restaurant biz, he attended Lansing Community College and studied restaurant management before working at the Starved Rock Lodge as a bartender and floor manager.
Eager to gain experience in the hospitality industry, he followed friends to Colorado, where he managed a number of restaurants in the ski towns of Winter Park and Fraser.
He also gained experience in carpentry building custom homes, a skill he knew would help him when he opened his own restaurant – a dream he held onto during his nearly 25 years in the Rocky Mountains.
hat dream came true when he learned the Monaris were selling their family restaurant in LaSalle, IL a few miles from his hometown.
Now married to a Colorado native, Donnie brought his wife Ellen to the IL Valley where they reopened Monaris 101 as the 101 Supper Club.
