Guy has several featured shows currently airing on the network including Diners, Drive-ins and Dives, Guy’s Big Bite and Guy’s Grocery Games.

Also, he has made frequent celebrity chef appearances at the Atlantic City Food and Wine Festival and the South Beach Food and Wine Festival.
Celebrity Chef Speaker Chef Guy Fieri and his business partner, Steve Gruber, launched an Italian restaurant in Sonoma County, California called Johnny Garlic’s. Their second location was in Windsor, California and a third location in Roseville, California. Another restaurant, Tex Wasabi’s, was later opened in 2003 in Santa Rosa, California and their second location opened in Sacramento in 2007. Guy was a three-term president of the Restaurant Association of the Redwood Empire and serves on the board of directors for the Educational Foundation of the California Restaurant Association.
Wanting to empower today’s parents to include their children in the cooking process and educate them on healthy eating, Guy helped draft California state legislation announcing the second Saturday in May “Cook With Your Kids Day.” Guy Fieri was also invited to cook at the White House in March 2010 by the U.S. Navy Team, where he spoke to politicians about making “Cook with Your Kids Day” a national holiday. In 2011, Guy launched his CWK (Cooking with Kids) program to help encourage children to learn about healthy living and eating to combat the rise of childhood obesity.
In May 2011, Celebrity Chef Speaker Guy Fieri appeared on the Rachael Ray Show and they announced their new show Guy vs. Rachael’s Celebrity Smackdown. Rachael Ray describes the new show as “the cooking equivalent to Dancing with the Stars.” Guy’s most recent TV show is called Guy’s Grocery Games which premiered in 2013 on the Food Network.
On May 25, Guy was part of the Guy Fieri Food Show at the Midland Center for the Arts throwing a “gigantic food party, not a cooking demonstration,” he said before the tour. Guy has also hosted the NBC game show A Minute to Win It.
As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, Fieri further worked to help the restaurant industry through working with the National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation. The goal to help raise money for those newly unemployed restaurant workers led to the Restaurant Employee Relief Fund, to which over $20,000,000 was raised in just over a month and a half. He has since then further focused on other philanthropy projects as well, with the goal of helping restaurants climb back from the financial struggles they may now be in.
Celebrity Chef Guy Fieri is available for speaking engagements, endorsements and personal appearances.
