WHO WE ARE.
Rule No. One Hospitality Group (RNO) is comprised of the owners, designers, trainers, and managers of our award-winning restaurants and bars.
Based in Madison, WI, RNO has established itself as a leader in the hospitality space through seamless integration of its areas of expertise including strategy, concept, design, branding, and world-class food and beverage creation and development.
WHAT WE DO.
RNO is a mission-driven lifestyle company dedicated to creating spaces for celebrating and treating each other and ourselves well. We seek to provide warm, fun and an endlessly interesting mix of inspired programming that challenges, invigorates and delights our guests by celebrating our craft, who we are, what we do and what we believe―capturing the Wisconsin experience.
WHAT WE STAND FOR.
Humility. We are modest about capabilities, admit mistakes, and create the space for others to contribute.
Collaboration. We are a team centered around positivity, that stands for one message which involves empowering others, empathizing with each other, and uplifting others as a collective.
Respect & Justice. All team members need to be treated respectfully and fairly. This pertains to equity in pay, and specific attention to physical/mental health, well-being and safety.
Love. Cooking and serving others is a powerful act of caring and love for one another. Let us work together to bring our community together through the power of food and drink.
Equity. Starting in 2020, we have completely redesigned our compensation for our staff. Tips are shared across all hourly-paid staff members, and we ensure a minimum of $15 per hour.
Inclusivity. We will establish a culturally diverse and inclusive environment, one that specifically supports minorities, all genders, and those historically underrepresented in our industry.
We stand in solidarity in support of Black, LGBTQ+, and Indigenous communities everywhere.
