meet the chef

Jake started in hospitality at age 15 in his hometown of Fortville. He and Toby met during their time at Ball State, where Jake first started working in fine dining. He relocated to Indy, working his way through the ranks to eventually become Regional Chef for Prime 47. It was always Jake’s dream to own his own restaurant, and in 2015 that became reality when he and Toby opened FoxGardin Kitchen & Ale.
