BarFly Ventures is the parent company of HopCat, Stella's Lounge, Grand Rapids Brewing Co. and the Waldron Public House of Grand Rapids. BarFly was founded by Mark Sellers in 2008 after the opening of HopCat in Grand Rapids, Michigan. In addition to its four locations in Grand Rapids, BarFly owns and operates 11 additional HopCat locations in Ann Arbor, Detroit, East Lansing, Kalamazoo, Indianapolis, Chicago, Madison, Wisconsin, Lexington and Louisville, Kentucky, Kansas City, Missouri and Lincoln, Nebraska. BarFly isn't your typical restaurant/bar company. We recycle and compost up to 90 percent of the waste we generate. We provide fun and unique benefits. We have created a "weird" culture, in which we value every employee. We care deeply about the people we work with, the world we live in, the communities where we operate and, most importantly, the guests we get to serve each day.
