Mark Dougherty – Owner Mark’s East Side

Mark’s East Side has been family owned and operated since 1967. The original building was built in 1948 as a restaurant, called the Normandie. After 19 years, 3 different owners and a couple of fires, the then closed restaurant was purchased by Mark’s parents, Bill and Jan Dougherty in July 1967. They reopened the restaurant and changed the name to “Chef Bills”. Bill (a long standing area chef) ran the kitchen and Jan ran the front of the house for fifteen years with much success and two expansions to the building.

During this time Bill and Jan’s son Mark worked as a dishwasher and bus person. At age fifteen, under the guidance of his father he started cooking. After graduating from UW Oshkosh in 1982, Mark took over the management and business operations of the restaurant. In 1987 Mark decided to put his own stamp on the restaurant with an extensive dining room remodeling and changed the name to Mark’s East Side.

Through the years there have been numerous remodeling projects and a kitchen expansion in 1999. Family is important to the business, with love, support and help from Mark’s wife Lori and two sons, Will and Riley. Mark believes that the secret to success is in attention to the smallest details.
