Guy Fieri is a United States restaurateur, author, television personality, and game show host. He co-owns five restaurants in California and is widely known for his television series on the Food Network. By mid-2010, the Food Network had made Fieri the "face of the network." In 2010, the New York Times reported that Fieri brought an "element of rowdy, mass-market culture to American food television," and that his "prime-time shows attract more male viewers than any others on the network." Although Fieri has no training as a chef, he worked at various restaurants during high school, and then went on to manage and own restaurants. After graduation in 1987, he went to work for Stouffer's, developing restaurant concepts in Southern California and managing their flagship restaurant in Long Beach, California. After three years, he became District Manager of Louise's Trattoria, managing six locations along with recruiting and training for the restaurants.
