Nick Bergelt is the creative entrepreneurial force behind the successful HospitalityX portfolio company, which develops and manages independent restaurants that break the mold of traditional dining, offering exceptional food and beverage experiences for guests throughout the country. Nick provides bold brand leadership with a clear sense of purpose, combined with a high level of enthusiasm to deliver products that are well-received by consumers, investors, and the industry alike. “At HospitalityX, we are re-imagining the traditional notion of what a ‘restaurant’ is, and what it can be in the future,” Bergelt explains. “These outlets can offer amazing food-service operations that function as independent restaurants, and are built for the people who live and work in these cities, resulting in opportunities to positively impact those communities. No matter when you join us, HospitalityX’s brands serve up extraordinary experiences that are a feast for the senses. Whether joining us for breakfast, lunch, dinner or lingering over drinks, our brand's clientele are hungry for life and eager to savor new experiences in which food is an entrée to adventure. Wherever they’re located, our concepts feature a distinctive scene and a subtly infused local vibe. Each is an experience where food, drink and inspired design meet and mix." With a keen strategic vision, Nick has since overseen the launch of five award-winning HospitalityX brands: Holy Tequila, Charbar Co, Healthy Habit, Whiskey Room & Stoners Pizza. “The number-one factor driving our restaurants forward is innovation,” he says. “HospitalityX prides itself on improving dining by converging technology with quality cuisine and progressive, design forward atmospheres to build a better overall dining experience.” .
