Andrew Jacobi always flirted with the idea of starting a food business, but found himself chasing the competitive high of private equity after college. After yet another late night, he decided to think more seriously about his long-harbored love for meat. After learning the beef supply chain first hand and meeting his founding chef, Ricky, Andy started Untamed Sandwiches, a fast-casual concept with 3 locations across NYC. Untamed’s unique focus on braised meat as the centerpiece has allowed him to use “less-loved” cuts of meat to build a restaurant business that is delicious, accessible and scalable.
