Who is his father Guy?
Guy Ramsay Fieri was born in Columbus, Ohio USA on 22 January 1968, meaning that Aquarius is his zodiac sign. He’s a co-owner of three Californian restaurants, and owner of two in Las Vegas, Nevada and New York City – since the mid-2000s he’s hosted various shows on the Food Network.
Guy was raised in Humboldt County, California by his father Lewis James Ferry and mother Penelope Anne (nee Price), but not a lot has been shared about them because Guy respects their privacy. He fell in love with cooking while attending a local high school, but it was while spending a summer in France as an exchange student that he decided he wanted to become a chef. Guy matriculated in 1986, and then enrolled at University of Nevada, Las Vegas from which he graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in hotel management in 1990.
Upon his return from France, and while still attending high school, Guy began working at the Red Lion Inn, and upon graduation started by managing the Stouffer’s restaurant Parker’s Lighthouse; following this, he became the general manager at Louise Trattoria, which numbered six restaurants.
He and Steve Gruber opened their restaurant Johnny Garlic in Santa Rosa, California in 1996, and then their second location in Windsor three years later; they opened another in Petaluma in 2000, and their fourth in Roseville in 2008. The two businessmen also opened the barbecue and sushi establishment Tex Wasabi in Santa Rosa in 2003, and in another location in 2007; their fifth Johnny Garlic’s was opened in 2011, in Dublin, California.
In 2012, he opened Guy’s American Kitchen and Bar in New York City, but it closed in 2017; regardless, he opened a restaurant in Las Vegas, Nevada in April 2014, and another in Baltimore, Maryland in 2015.
Guy and British-American businessman Robert Earl opened together a fast food chicken sandwich shop in Walt Disney World in 2018.
Guy’s been on TV since 23 April 2006, when the first episode of his show “Guy’s Big Bite” premiered on the Food Network. His second show “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives” premiered in April 2007, and was followed by his shows “Ultimate Recipe Showdown”, “Guy Off the Hook” and “Minute to Win It”.

Guy’s also the owner of a vineyard, and sells his own wine Hunt & Ryde, named after his sons.
He met his future wife Lori when she came to the restaurant in Long Beach, California which he was managing; they exchanged vows in 1995. Guy’s sister died from metastatic melanoma in 2011, and he and Lori thus decided to take in her 11-year-old son Jules.
