Union Jack Pub in Broad Ripple has been a part of the Broad Ripple community for more than 38 years and we could not have achieved this milestone without the loyal patronage of our customers. So first, and foremost, thank you for your loyalty over the years.
For those who do not know us, we are Jay, Chelsey, Sylvia, and Ruby Wetzel. At the time we are writing, we have owned the Union Jack for nearly 5 years and we could not be more honored to be a part of its wonderful traditions. To us, and to many of you, this is not just another restaurant. It’s not just another pub. It’s part of a community. It’s a place to watch your favorite soccer team among friends and it’s a place to have a first date. It’s a place to propose to your beloved and a place to celebrate an anniversary. It’s where holiday traditions take place from Christmas Eve lunch to race weekend celebrations. It’s a place to celebrate a birthday and a place to catch up with friends.
We remain ever-thankful to those who came before us and built this incredible pub. Their hard work and talent is not lost on us. People grew up in this pub working through high school and college or getting their feet wet in the industry before moving on to opening their own restaurants. We are proud to be a part of so many people’s lives and journeys.
The Union Jack has been an incredible blessing to our lives and we work hard to pay it forward as often as possible. We hope you never hesitate to reach out if you need us for anything—be that a charity you’re working on, moving the tables out of the pub to create standing room only for a big soccer match, or a private event. We are here for you.
We are elated to have so many new friends and people we consider our “family” in both customers and employees alike. Union Jack has the most wonderful employees who are the heart and soul of the pub experience. And to the customers who have made this place their home—you are our family and we are blessed to know you.
We are grateful to raise our family with the support of the Union Jack. We hope you always remember that your money supports our young family and the families of our incredible employees.
The great city of Indianapolis and the state of Indiana are close to our hearts and we think Kurt Vonnegut said it best … “I don’t know what it is about Hoosiers, but wherever you go, there seems to be a Hoosier doing something important.” Let’s keep doing important things together!
With all our love and gratitude,
Jay, Chelsey, Sylvia, and Ruby Wetzel
