While attending the University of Idaho, Jake Jones got a job hashing (serving food) at the Gamma Phi Beta sorority house. The housemother quickly relieved Jake of his hasher duties when he accidentally dropped a jam knife down her dress. Fortunately, he was given a reprieve, and she thrust him into the kitchen to assist the cook. As it turned out, the cook was the best cook on campus. Upon graduation, Jake decided to stay in the food business. Jake managed several college food services, then worked for a regional buffet chain before opening his first restaurant in 1975 in Pocatello. Jake is also the Area Franchise Developer for Red Robin in Montana, and operates Red Robin restaurants in Billings and Missoula. In 2009, Jake brought Justin Philbrick on as partner in Jaker's and 2 Red Robin Restaurants. Justin has worked for Jake since 1997 where he started as a line cook. He worked as GM of the Missoula Jaker's while obtaining his business degree from the University of Montana. Justin has been Supervising the restaurants since 2004 and is looking forward to the future growth of the company. No matter how hard we try to create the most superb dining experience possible, what do people remember? Jaker's Scones and honey butter. You fawn over them. You talk about them with friends. You even have dreams about them. I guess we shouldn't complain, because you always come back for more.
