Andrew Fetzer’s passion for hospitality and cuisine started to develop at a very young age. Originally from Long Island, he and his family moved to North Carolina in 1989. His mother, a Regional Cake Decorator Instructor for Wilton, inspired him that food can be both elegant and delicious.

Shortly after High School, in 2002, he graduated from the Culinary program at Alamance Community College. Starting his career, Andrew learned under Chef Sam Poley at the Weathervane Restaurant in Chapel Hill, NC. Over the next 15 years, Andrew moved on to gain experience in hotels, corporate café’s and luxury retirement facilities.

At home, Andrew enjoys cooking for his wife Carla, an Orthopedic Nurse at Duke Regional. They have a 3 year old boy, Tristan, and another son expected around Christmas 2016. Physical fitness and good nutrition has been a part of Andrew's daily routine for over 10 years. His brother, Jason, is a Detective and S.W.A.T. member in Charlotte, NC. Andrew's father retired from Underwriter Laboratories as an Electrical Engineer this year.
