AARON & JESSICA GRIMMER: Aaron & Jessica Grimmer are co-owners of a growing restaurant group in Portland, OR. They married in 2004 in Provo, UT, where they opened their first restaurant, Pudding on the Rice. In 2008, they moved their family and their cafe to Portland, OR. From 2012-2016, they opened four additional concepts in downtown and northwest Portland: Picnic House (2012), Barlow (2014), High Noon (2015), and CHKCHK (2016). CHKCHK, the most recent addition to the restaurant group, features a community-minded business model that donates fives percent of gross sales directly to the Q Center, a Portland non-profit that provides a safe space to support and celebrate LGBTQ diversity, visibility and community building.
