Meet Anthony. Our craft beer loving, spicy food eating, destination restaurant seeking, local fare enthusiast & Co-Founder! Two common threads throughout his life are the love of food and the love of a good experience. When the two are combined, it’s these moments that makes Anthony take a step back to breathe in deep and remember just how good life is.
Originally from Miramar, FL, he moved to Delray Beach in 2014 with the goal of creating a lifestyle. In that stretch, while working in digital marketing, he started to develop an aspiring passion for being a connoisseur of good food and drink. After a year of traveling and dining up and down Atlantic Avenue, he noticed there were a wealth of restaurants doing creative things with food. This led him to a new project called Craft Food Tours as a way to share his love for high quality, locally sourced food & drink. His entrepreneur career has been spent connecting people, visitors and locals alike, to the amazing area we live in. From working as a digital marketer at GiddyUp to being a small business owner at Craft Food Tours – he strives to be centered around people and experiences.
He is fascinated with taking pictures of food, as for Anthony it is absolutely necessary to have a record of a memorable meal so that it is never forgotten. @CraftFoodTours
