Jack Jacobs has owned Chez Gourmet Catering in South Florida for almost 20 years where he is also the executive chef.  In addition, Jack has extensive experience in sales. He can show you how to be a both a chef and a salesperson, and also help small caterers with tips on how to grow their business with face to face interactions and great word of mouth, not only relying on social media.

Prior to starting Chez Gourmet with his wife, Jack Jacobs lived in Maui for five years where he developed a love for Pacific Rim cuisine and fabulous food. He had started cooking for his family at the young age of 14 and loved it ever since. Missing family and friends, they soon moved to the mainland and opened an award-winning restaurant in Atlanta, Georgia. The restaurant was soon voted the best new Italian restaurant by readers of a major Atlanta newspaper. A few years later, after once again hearing the call of the ocean and the sound of the wind whistling through the palms, Jack and his wife sold the restaurant and pursued their dream of creating a unique catering company in beautiful, sunny South Florida.

Today, Chez Gourmet has grown beyond their highest expectations, encompassing both catering and party planning that has delighted thousands of customers. Jack’s goal is to create healthy, fresh and tasty menus for his clients. He believes you can get just as much flavor from fresh ingredients from the garden, unique spices and lower fat options without adding cream and butter to every dish. Chez Gourmet has become renowned for providing their clients with restaurant quality food that is full of flavor.
