He grew up in Great Neck in the U.S. where he spent his early childhood he claims was nice.
Jon went to a high school in the area called William A. Shine Great Neck South High School. As soon as he could’ve think about money, he did.
He grew up with a lot of insights about money since his parents were enrepreneurs.
He enrolled the University of Denver and he decided that he was going to get a degree in science (but only the field connected to politics) and anthropology.
He relocated to Los Angeles during his education, but today he lives in the city of lights: Las Vegas.
His first job wasn’t anything he wanted to do and not even close to the things he attented in the uni.
He was a bartended in the 1970’s and he worked in West Hollywood. These were his teenage years while he was a band member and he had an interest of becoming a rock star.
His first job in the area he wanted to work in was the job of a manager in a night club in West Hollywood. This happened in 1978 and he was controlling the staff and managing income and expenses of the bar.
He realized that he was very good in the job and decided to open his first bar in late 1980’s.
He worked as an owner and a manager for a really long time and in the end, in 2010, he became the president of the Nightclub and Bar Media Group.
They take care of annual shows related to clubs, rankings, magazines and so on. It’s a very important job that needs to be properly hosted in order to function.
In 2011, a show called Bar Rescue premiered. It is a show that presents various bars and eventually nightclubs in horrible condition. Taffer hosts this show and turns bars with potential into money-making cribs, as he says.
The makeovers are all sponsored so the show isn’t to expensive to host and Jon makes a lot of money on them.
His wife Nicole makes a few appearances on the show every now and then and she plays the role of mystery shopper.
Not only is he famous for his hosting of the show, but is also famous because of other things he is included in.
He published his book Raise the Bar in 2013 and wrote about how he started his career, what it takes to make a bar succesful and included various tips for owners. The book sold like crazy and it made a lot of money for Jon.
BarHQ is a managment he made in 2014 and he is very proud of it.
Also, he has his own system which is used to teach people how to manage music for public locations.
Jon opened his own merch shop where he sells different shirts, mugs and similar with his logo. It makes a great income because all of the bars he does makeovers on usually want to have at leat some glasses with his name on them.
He is a beverage consultant because it’s a big part of his job with the bars. When he does makeovers on other people’s jobs, he not only changes the exterior and interior by buying new furniture and decorations, but he also oftenly changes the staff and the beverages the bar offers.
He got into many conflicts with people who were fired after he did the renovating in the bar they worked at. He says that none of this strikes him because he has to do things in order to make a business work.
He has a daughter called Samantha with his wife Nicole.
His daughter is the most precious thing he has, as he says. He claims nothing in the world can change the fact that he would sell everything he has just to make his daughter happy.
