Andy Jacobi is the Managing Partner and co-founder of Untamed Sandwiches, a sandwich shop featuring braised meat sandwiches made with sustainable ingredients. That means all beef and lamb is 100% grass-fed, all pork is 100% pasture raised, and all chicken is 100% free range. Untamed utilizes top quality ingredients to create something as basic, casual and wholesome as a hot, meaty sandwich, and pairs those amazing sandwiches with speedy and engaging service. Untamed was named the #1 sandwich shop in New York City by Zagat and the #1 sandwich shop in midtown by Foursquare.
Prior to co-founding Untamed, Andy was the Director of Sales and Marketing for Wild Idea Buffalo Company, a grass-fed buffalo company, selling its products nationwide through both retail and wholesale channels. In that role, he learned how good sustainably-raised, grass-fed meat could taste. He worked closely with chefs to help them choose cuts of meat that would work with their menu at a price that would be profitable to the restaurant and reasonable for the customer. Prior to that, he was an investment professional at the private equity firm DLJ Investment Partners, where he specialized in investments in the food, defense and energy industries. With his experience in food, finance and management, Mr. Jacobi manages the day-to-day operations of the restaurant while also managing business development. Mr. Jacobi earned an MBA from Columbia Business School in 2012 and his BA from Middlebury College in 2005.
