Company Description
It all started when three friends teamed up to bring to life a dream they believed in. Combining their life savings, they opened their first restaurant in Chinatown, DC. What began as a tribute to their father soon became a thriving business based on the idea of community where friends and families could bond over hearty meals.
With more than 60 years of restaurant experience combined, these three friends utilized their passion and entrepreneurial spirits to create something bigger than serving food.
Since then, their restaurants have begun to span the country and they have established roots in various cities to become part of the neighborhoods.

Matchbox -- Casual, cool and contemporary. Join family and friends on an outdoor patio or beside a fire pit to enjoy chef-driven bistro fare or wood-burning oven pizza. Pair a craft beer or cocktail with your meal for the perfect evening.

Ted's Bulletin -- Take a step back in time, Ted's Bulletin combines a new age take on a classic shake joint. Displayed with vintage family photos, they offer classics such as tomato soup, grilled cheese, and other traditional recipes that have been passed along from generation to generation, staying true to Ted Neal himself. Ted's Bulletin aims to serve the surrounding neighborhoods and support the people of the community.
