Restaurateur Rick Camac of Fatty Crew - Biography

New York, NY

August 2012

Rick Camac holds multiple, highly practical degrees—the kind of certifications that mean he’s a good and capable businessman. But to most of the concerned culinary world, what Camac really holds are the keys to one of New York’s favorite, boldest, and most idiosyncratic dining experiences: the Fatty Crew restaurant group.

Not that Camac’s degree in Business Administration from the State University of New York at Oswego, or his diploma in Computer Technology from NYU, don’t keep the Fatty wheels well-greased. In addition to being the managing partner of the group, which owns, operates, and manages the various “Fatty” restaurants around the boroughs—Fatty Crab, Fatty ‘Cue, Pig & Khao, etc.—Camac oversees plans for national and international expansion.

Always eager to expand what’s clearly become a successful, potentially iconic brand, Camac’s also an integral factor in the Fatty Crew’s professional expansion, managing efforts to get into licensing opportunities, collaborative partnerships, and product roll-outs. Meaning the Fatty experience New Yorkers have so come to love may well be closer than ever.
