Chef Tyler Sailsbery is the executive chef and owner of The Black Sheep Restaurant in Whitewater WI and the Owner of Casual Joe’s. Tyler received some of his training through Fox Valley Technical College’s Culinary Program, and further honed his skills while working for caterers and restaurants throughout the Fox Valley. He then attended Business School in Whitewater WI emphasizing entrepreneurship. His focus on farm to table meals stems from his rich agricultural history-a combination of growing up on his family’s small farm and his experience with the Wisconsin FFA association. Tyler enjoys adapting and combining French and Italian classics to provide customers with a twist on traditional favorites. Tyler believes food should be fresh, local, simple and unpretentious.
General Manager, Elijah Krause, started his journey at Casual Joe’s in June of 2017. As a part-time student, Eli loves working along side Chef Tyler on a day-to-day basis. Eli’s passion lies with hospitality and customer service, and believes there is so much to learn in the industry and is very appreciative to have this opportunity to run a restaurant. With so many new things learned each day, he hopes to contribute to help the restaurant thrive in his newly found hometown here in Whitewater, Wisconsin.
