Local Restaurant with small town hospitality pride is growing into the next generation.
Ras’ on Main, located at 855 Davis Street in Hammond, WI was established in 1996 by local man Glen Rasmussen. Glen was born and raised in Hammond and graduated from St. Croix Center. Glen started young in the hospitality business at fast food joints then moving up to sit down restaurants. As he learned the business, he realized he loved working with people and learned a great deal about how to make people happy with great service.
The jump to entrepreneurship was natural for Glen and what better place to do so then your own hometown. Ras’ on Main was the result and Glen’s first goal: have great food! He knew he could be successful as long as the food is great.
Glen’s son Tyler started working at the restaurant at a young age, first washing dishes and then cooking. As the years progressed, he realized he loved the business and took great pride in his contribution to help Ras’ On Main grow. Tyler graduated from St. Croix Central in 2010 and then attended UW-River Falls where he graduated with a masters degree in Computer Science and Information Systems and a minor in Business Administration. But even after that experience, he couldn’t leave the business he helped build from a young age. Tyler decided to go back to Ras’ On Main and continue the great tradition.
Glen and Tyler along with their staff are celebrating their 21st year in business.
