Founders

With backgrounds in finance, music, and restaurants, John Davenport, Jeff Grant and John Haggai came together to open a restaurant featuring wood fired cooking, a seasonal menu, and craft libations. After 18 months of traveling and testing, they opened Tazza Kitchen Short Pump in 2013. With a background in communications, Susan Davenport joined the team full time in 2017. While all four partners have a hand in daily operations, John Davenport takes care of finance, Grant oversees the culinary team, Susan Davenport manages HR and customer engagement, and Haggai manages the beverage program and construction.
