Just Take Action, Inc (or as we know it, JTA) started way back in 1995. Two people had this crazy idea to start a brewpub in Duluth. Back then, the Craft Beer culture was nothing like it is today. They took a gamble on what became one of Duluth's most popular Restaurants - Fitger's Brewhouse. The two owners, Tim Nelson and Rod Raymond, later decided to add other bars/restaurants to their group. All of a sudden, they started to open - Red Star Nightclub, Brewhouse Beer Store, Burrito Union, Tycoons Zenith Alehouse, Rathskeller, and Endion Station. In 2014, Red Star Nightclub turned into the Barrel Room. In 2015, the ownership changed to Rod Raymond with a Board of Directors.
When you come to work with us, we want you to be yourself. We will never require you to read a script like a robot can. We want your personality to shine and help bring a new level of excitement to our restaurants. We want everyone to add value in their own way to our organization. Be Authentic.
We believe in good karma. What comes around, goes around. Integrity is such a huge party of who we are as a person. Always do the right thing, regardless of who is or isn't looking. We also believe in giving to those who are in need. Keep your eyes and ears open for opportunities for us to help local organizations!
Life can be boring, unless you make it otherwise. We encourage you to bring all of your passion and excitement every day. We want to hear your suggestions. Do you have drink ideas? Do you have food ideas? We want to know. We would love to encourage you do explore life, and be adventurous.
We are all one big family, and we believe the guests in our restaurants and stores are as well. We do what we can to care about the person in front of us. How can we help them? We serve each other. We serve the environment, we serve our guests, we serve our vendors. Everything we do radiates from our heart, and our actions need to show that.
