About Sam Fox, CEO and Founder, Fox Restaurant Concepts

What Sam’s mom wants you to know:

As the founder of Fox Restaurant Concepts, Sam is the creative visionary behind the wildly successful restaurant group with 44 locations and 15 unique concepts spanning seven states. A six-time James Beard Award nominee for Restaurateur of the Year, and The New York Times best-selling cookbook author, Sam was recently named one of the 50 most influential people in the restaurant industry by Nation’s Restaurant News for the second consecutive year and was the 2014 recipient of the Richard Melman Innovator of the Year Award by Restaurant Hospitality magazine.

He sincerely believes in sharing his success by generously giving back to the communities his restaurants serve. Sam has been an avid supporter of the Boys & Girls Clubs since the company’s inception in 1998 and recently held the position of honorary chair for the American Heart Association’s 2013 Heart Ball. In addition, Fox Restaurant Concepts supports several nonprofit organizations, including notMYkid and UMOM New Day Centers.

What Fox Restaurant Concepts wants you to know:

The things that drive Sam are great food, design, and hospitality. The master of details, you’re likely to find him snacking on the turkey pastrami sandwich from Culinary Dropout while developing the design plan for one of the several new restaurant concepts he’s launching this year. Sam sincerely believes that every detail matters, from selecting the perfect fabric for furniture on one of his restaurant’s signature patios, to the exact ratio of spirits in a brand new craft cocktail. Today, Fox Restaurant Concepts employs more than 2,700 people with plans for significant and thoughtful growth over the next three years.

In his spare time, Sam enjoys time at the beach with his wife and children, sipping on various libations, and letting his creative juices flow.
