About Us

Posted by Benvenutos on Friday, November 3, 2017



In 1996, Brian and Khristy Dominick moved to Wisconsin to open Benvenuto’s Italian Grill in Beaver Dam with a great team of people. Tonya Clark, now the president/COO, started as a part time host when Benvenuto’s opened, and is still with the company today. Chad Webster, the current vice president and director of operations has also been with the company for many years, contributing to its success along with many other long-term employees.

The Benvenuto’s restaurant concept started off as a dinner only, Italian dining experience. The menu consisted of a handful of pasta dishes and a few wood-fired pizzas; all of which embodied a “family style” presentation, with food being served on giant platters for 3-4 people. Soon after, the doors opened for lunch and the menu changed to include individual dishes, expanded entrée options and grilled items such as steaks and fish.

Today, Benvenuto’s Italian Grill has grown to six locations across Wisconsin, with plans to open more in the near future. All locations are family-owned businesses and two are locally owned and operated franchises.  The Benvenuto’s concept offers something for everyone, focusing on quality, fresh ingredients.

Brian’s founding philosophy is to never settle and to always look for ways to improve upon our food and service on a daily basis. “We should always be looking for ways to heighten our guest’s experience.”
