Surf’s Up South Shore is owned by Vanetta D. Roy a Special Education Teacher for Chicago Public Schools.

While providing excellent high-quality food service and employment to people in the South Shore neighborhood. Committed to taking fast food to new heights. Good Food, Good Times, Good People!
Vanetta Roy operates the Old Town location and one on the South Shore. Her brother and sister-in-law, Eric and Denise Roy, founded Surf’s Up. They want to open Surf’s Up restaurants outside of the Chicago area. They’ve already opened in Huntsville, Alabama. LA, Houston, Milwaukee, and Indianapolis are also being considered. Locally, South Loop and suburban Chicago Heights locations are also planned. Earlier this year, the family-run chain also added a virtual kitchen in Avondale for online ordering and delivery.
