About Us

Before he began his adventures in business ownership, Chef Jack could be found in the kitchen at Villa De Bruno and the Alsip Holiday Inn. How did this Political Science & History graduate from Southern Illinois University end up in the kitchen? Stop by the restaurant, he is always happy to chat!

Chef Jack started Comfort's Catering in 1995 while he was Chef/Owner of Hoosier Cafe. He later built a production kitchen to keep up with his growing catering business. Then in 2010, he added a dining room and opened Comforts Restaurant, offering his specialties for lunch and dinner.

The chef has been an active member of the American Culinary Federation since 1978 and has held the position of President and Sergeant at Arms for the their Northwest Indiana Chapter. He currently holds the position of Chairman of the Board.
