Guy Fiery’s Family and Wiki
Guy Fiery was born on January 22, 1968, in Columbus Ohio USA to Penny Anne; mother, and Lewis James Ferry; father. He grew up in Ferndale in the rural Humboldt County area of California. He is an American by nationality and has Italian origins (His paternal grandfather was of Italian descent). Fiery changed his surname, Ferry, back to his family’s original surname, Fieri or Fiery, when he got married in 1995, in honor of his immigrant great-grandfather, Giuseppe Fieri.
While in grade school in Ferndale, Fiery began washing dishes and selling pretzels from his “Awesome Pretzel” cart to finance his trip to study in France. When he returned to the US, he took up a job in the Red Lion Inn in Eureka, California which he diligently executed until he departed for college in Las Vegas.
After college, Fiery enrolled at the University of Nevada and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Hotel Management in 1990. Sequel to this, he went to work for Stouffer’s as a Manager for a Long Beach California restaurant. He spent about three years in southern California and rose to become the district manager of Louise’s Trattoria, managing six profitable locations of the business along with recruiting and training for the restaurant. Currently, Guy Fiery co-owns another six restaurants with partner Steve Gruber. These include four Johnny Garlic’s at Santa Rosa, Windsor, Roseville, and Dublin, CA, and two Tex Wasabi’s at Santa Rosa and Sacramento, CA.

Also in his collection are a 1971 Chevrolet Chevelle which is his most precious collection, a 1969 Chevrolet Corvette, a 2006 Chevrolet Kodiak (NICKNAME: Full Bore) – it has an extra step drop down so when Guy opens the door he can climb in. His son, Hunter drove it to a high school dance once. He also boasts of a $200k Lamborghini Gallardo. Most cars in his collection are yellow in color so you are pretty much certain the color yellow is a thing for him.
His home is a Mediterranean-styled seven acres home that sits near the North Bay city in Santa Rosa. The home is located on a 2,300 square-foot area in a Wine Country retreat. It boasts of three bedrooms, two full bathrooms and a half, a raised hearth brick fireplace, and included within the abundant acreage are perennial gardens, olive trees, and an orchard with a variety of fruit trees.
