Adam Campbell is a product of the United States Marine Corps, and a long-time resident of Grand Rapids, Michigan. He joined the Marine Corps almost right out of high school when he was 18 and did two deployments. During his four years in the Marine Corps, he achieved the rank of Corporal and was a Food Service Specialist responsible for all ordering, menus, stock, and anything related to running the galley and kitchen. Even in his civilian life, Adam grew up in the restaurant industry. His first job was working in a small food service operation in 1994. After that he had several jobs ranging from fast food service to casual dining and even fine-dining.
The Marine Corps taught Adam the discipline, dedication and drive to succeed. He learned and adopted the leadership traits that the Marine Corps teaches: justice, judgment, dependability, integrity, decisiveness, tact, initiative, enthusiasm, selflessness, courage, knowledge, loyalty and endurance, and tries to apply them to his every day life.
Adam has been a homebrewer for several years now and has had some public success. He recently placed second in a competition held by Rochester Mills Brewing Company, out of Auburn Hills, Michigan, in April of 2013 with his “Chosin Saison”. He has wanted to own his own restaurant since he was a child. Only over the last 4 years has that desire developed in to a brewery/restaurant concept called Maddog Brewhaus.
Adam’s vision includes a full menu with gourmet burgers and micro-brewery. Ultimately, he wants his location to be able to support events including military functions, parades, and donating to Veteran’s organizations. The brewery will have some military decor as a tribute to those who have served.
Adam has a strong sense of family, and enjoys working with others that feel the same way. He believes that it is important to treat employees like family, much like his Marines. They are the ones that are going to help you make it through the tough times. The camaraderie that was taught in the Marine Corps is a part of his life. Being able to carry that into his own business will make it that much more successful.
