Lou Morreale, trained chef and graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, became involved with JBJ Soul Kitchen during the early stages of development. Motivated by the mission and connection to the community, Lou supplied much-needed equipment, dinnerware, and support during our pilot program in Red Bank, NJ, where our flagship restaurant is now located. Since joining the JBJ Soul Kitchen family officially in 2014, he has assisted in expanding the JBJ Soul Kitchen model to Toms River, NJ and the Rutgers University-Newark campus.
Lou is no stranger to food service as he has owned and operated a local country club, multiple restaurants, cafes, a catering company, concessions, a senior living food service and an entertainment hospitality catering company.
Lou’s accolades include serving over 700 entertainment artists and public figures including President Obama, which allowed him the honor and privilege to cook in the West Wing of the White House.
