Early Life and Education
Steve Margetic was born into an upper middle-class Connecticut suburb to parents of modest means, where he excelled academically in both English and Social Studies classes.

After spending many years working at large corporate restaurants, Margetic and two of his business partners invested a considerable amount of capital and launched their own restaurant. Over ten years, their operation blossomed into a chain with locations all across America; along the way Margetic gained extensive knowledge about restaurant industry as well as valuable managerial experience; today he serves on several boards, such as Sitzler Pty Ltd and Master Builders Australia among others.
Margetic is widely recognized as “The Magic Man,” having scored the first ever hat trick in an NASL Soccer Bowl game (1980). He led Chicago Sting FC to two league championships over New York Cosmos and international superstar Pele in 1981 and 1984.
