As a 2017 graduate of Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, with a bachelor's degree in communication and a minor in hospitality management, Chas’ lifelong passion has been involved in the sale of restaurants, bars, clubs, and commercial properties.

“I’m just very happy, our team at Prakas & Co. has already shaped some of South Florida’s major restaurant landscape. Having the rare opportunity to seek some of the top national and even global restaurant brands, concepts bringing them to our backyard is a passionate task of mine.”
“Being born in Boca Raton, I grew up a stone’s throw away from Mizner Park. Year by year I saw how that property has rejuvenated the city with exciting restaurants, boutique retail stores & live concert performances. Also, as a current Delray Beach resident, I’ve seen Atlantic Ave morph into the hottest area for new bars and restaurants firsthand. It’s fascinating to see what high-end commercial developments and new restaurant concepts can overhaul an entire city in a matter of 5-10 years. South Florida has many subpockets and side beach cities that will eventually populate higher and higher and drive the need for restaurants, entertainment or even retail spaces. And nobody knows the south Florida market better than Prakas & Co. “
