Jake Kalick

President/Co-Founder, Made In

Kalick grew up in the 88-year old family business of Harbour Food Service Equipment (a full-service hospitality design and supply company.) Here, Jake was armed with firsthand experience and knowledge that eventually inspired him to attend the Cornell School of Hotel Administration. After graduation, he went on to score a job at Avero, a restaurant analytics and consulting firm, where he harnessed dynamic relationships with restaurant and hotel group rock stars such as Stephen Starr (Philadelphia), Lettuce Entertain You Group (Chicago) and Kimpton Hotels. Since then Jake has been managing the family business into the next generation.

 

Life took an unexpected turn the day Jake received a call from his friend of over 20 years, Chip Malt, to be the business mastermind behind his new cookware endeavor, Made In. Jake accepted the challenge, ready to use his culinary engineering, design, and hospitality experience to  make Made In a true success.
