TO OUR

People

We would not be ‘The People’s Pub’ without our incredible pub families. It’s a very humbling experience to see people, day in and day out, bust their tail to fulfill a vision that was scribbled on a napkin in 2009. We will only go as far as our staff’s level of commitment, passion and desire. Based on that alone, I absolutely love our chances.

And to our guests and our communities we serve, thank you for embracing Irish 31 as a part of your circle. We aren’t perfect, but we strive everyday to get closer to the legendary standard we set for our brand. When we fall short, thanks for picking us up. When we exceed, thanks for being our biggest fans.

From the bottom of my heart and on behalf of my wife and our 4 kids, thank you for all that you do for Irish 31. Wishing explosive blessings to you all.

31

meaning

What is the significance of the “31”? Glad you asked. Yes, 31 was the jersey number of our founder, Jay Mize, when he played football at University of South Florida. Given sports is such a big part of our concept, it was fitting to have something that represented sports in our name. But on a much deeper level, when putting the brand together in 2009, Jay learned that St. Patrick used the shamrock (a three-leafed clover) as a symbol to depict the Trinity, or the “3” parts to the “1” God known as The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Inspired, and wanting to pay tribute to the legacy of the one and only Saint Patrick, Jay knew that Irish 31 was the perfect name for our pub, and if we were lucky, the “31” would give our brand a little extra dose of good luck and blessing along the way.

ICARE

FOUNDATION

At Irish 31, we have always been passionate about using our platform as a force for good in the communities that we serve. So, in 2017 we established our non-profit arm, the iCare Foundation, and later that same year launched the Cheers to PUBlic Service initiative.

Every year, alongside fellow impassioned community leaders known as our Pillar Partners, we hand-select extraordinary teachers that not only embody the I.R.I.S.H. (Influential, Responsible, Impactful, Selfless & Humble) attributes found in our most impactful leaders, but consistently go above and beyond in their classrooms and their communities for the sake of the children and their futures.
