the champps philosophy

Remember when watching the big game meant huddling around the TV at your buddy’s place? Yeah… we try not to remember it either. Luckily we’ve got an easy fix to flipping back and forth between games, trying not to miss that once in a lifetime play. Not to mention muchin’ on that weird plate of raw veggies, rank ranch, and stale chips from the grocery store around the corner.


At Champps we’ve focused on redefining American Cuisine, so you get the best of both worlds. As soon as you walk into the door you feel the atmosphere leaping from our Champpions, ready and eager to serve a heaping portion of Hand-Crafted eats, and Local Craft Brews. Our craveable made-from-scratch menu, vast selection of ice-cold beers, and huge MASSIVE screens on the walls are sure to get you pumped for any occasion.


We’re doing it our own, slightly off beat, way. It sorta makes heading out into the frigid weather for bad seats and overpriced stadium beers seem like a consolation prize. It’s our philosophy and we couldn’t be prouder. So no matter where you are in the country, pull up a chair and enjoy the Best Seat For Any Occasion.

about the company

The first Champps was founded in St. Paul, Minnesota in 1984 by midwestern restaurateur Dean Vlahos.  Opened originally under the name Concourse 7, Vlahos’ restaurant was founded with a vision of providing made-from-scratch American food with uncompromising service.  Dean oversaw the chain as it grew from a single restaurant in 1984 to selling the chain to Daka International in the mid-90s.  Between the late 90s and 2000s, Champps grew to its current size of more than 50 locations nationwide, all-the-while continuing to provide the scratch menu and signature service that define Champps.
