New Jams owner hints at expansion for restaurantBy Sarah Baker Hansen / WorldHerald staff writer | Posted: Friday, September 11, 2015 12:30amIt’s been a year of change for Jams Bar and Grill, and the change just keeps coming: the Omaharestaurant has a new owner, again. Omaha based Cutchall Management has purchased 65 percent of the ownership of Jams, 7814 Dodge St.Greg Cutchall, president and CEO of Cutchall Management, said he plans no menu changes at Jams.In fact, he said it was important to him that chef Jeff Newman, who has been at Jams for 15 years,and manager Chris Wray, who came on at the beginning of 2015, stayed at the restaurant.The two will remain coowners. Aaron McKeever and Marcus Herbert also will remain partners inthe restaurant.Cutchall does plan some interior design changes, including the removal of some of the communaltables in the center of Jams dining room. He said two of the three tall communal tables will each bereplaced with four hightop tables. The change is rooted in the idea that Jams is a popular spot forworking lunches, and some diners don’t like to talk business next to strangers.A few of the finishes in the restaurant might also be swapped out, he said. Any other changes will beon the back end of the restaurant and have to do with computer systems and inventory.Cutchall also said he hasn’t ruled out another location of Jams — in Omaha, or elsewhere.“We have not identified a second location. The second one would likely be in Omaha somewhere,”he said. “But we don’t buy a brand unless we see an opportunity to expand, and there is a chance.”Cutchall said business at Jams is bigger than ever since the debut of its new look and menu at thebeginning of the year. “Since Aaron and his partners bought it a year ago, it is up 20 percent,” Cutchall said. “So it’s doing considerably better.”Cutchall said among the improvements that drummed up new business were the addition of Sundayhours and a brunch menu.Cutchall owns and operates 50 restaurants in five states under eight different brands includingParadise Bakery, Sonic, Dominos, First Watch, Rock Bottom, Famous Daves, Tin Star Taco Bar andLoLo’s Chicken & Waffles.
As a boy working in his father’s south Omaha A&W Drive-in, Greg Cutchall couldn't imagine anything else besides being a restaurateur. his dad, Ray Cutchall, and uncle Bob Cutchall, owned several A&Ws and Kentucky Fried Chickens.Helping out at his father’s A&W in the summers became a rite of summer for young Greg, who lived the rest of the year in Tucson, Ariz., with his mother and siblings. His folks divorced when he was small. He recalls working trash cleanup and dishwashing details at the restaurant. He wanted to be just like his dad when he grew up and run his own fast-food joint. By his late teens, though, he found a new passion in photography. He enrolled at the University of Nebraska at Omaha fully intent on staying one year and then furthering his photo training in California. But his studies took a back seat to earning money from the portraits he shot and from an Indian jewelry shop he and a brother opened at the Westroads Mall.Read More Here
