Jennie Yip

Jennie Yip-Kim has been involved in the hospitality industry for over two decades.  Having created global culinary destinations, she continues to connect the dots for hoteliers, chefs, restaurateurs, real estate developers, and start-ups in the hospitality industry.

A Toronto, Canada-native, Jennie’s passion for the restaurant business began by working for famed restaurateur Brian McNally at 44, the restaurant in New York’s Royalton Hotel, and Ian Schrager in 1992. Two years later she was recruited to execute the opening of the Delano Hotel’s food and beverage program in Miami Beach. In 1996, Jennie started her restaurant/hospitality consulting company, Jenjuice Hospitality to advise hospitality professionals on global expansions, restaurant strategies, and project developments. Her first independent project was the Wave Department Store, in Bangkok. As the VP of Restaurant Development, she conceptualized and developed five unique dining establishments with designer Christian Liaigre.

“Yip’s experience in the culinary and hospitality industry spans over two decades, having worked with owners, operators, and developers as partners and consultants in various projects throughout the hospitality industry. Collaborations have included ground-breaking hotels such as Gramercy Park Hotel, Delano Hotel, and Mercer Hotel. She has also worked directly with celebrity hoteliers and restaurateurs including Ian Schrager, Geoffrey Zakarian, Andre Balazs, and Jean-Georges Vongerichten.”- Hotel Management
