Nick Manderfield and Carisa Frost were married in 2011 and in 2015 became parents when their son, Roman arrived. Until recently they lived in Chicago and both enjoyed corporate careers working on Michigan Avenue. In early 2013, during a visit to Colombia for a friends wedding both went through some life changing experiences and both Nick and Carisa dedicated their life to Christ. Little by little, their priorities started to change and they made the decision to live a life focused on helping others through their restaurant/retail business skills. They began dreaming about opening a chain of nonprofit restaurants that empowered and equipped both individuals and communities simultaneously. By early 2015 Nick and Carisa founded Restaurants on Mission and are currently in the process of opening up their first location in Medellin, Colombia.
