This week's guest is entrepreneur, visionary, and tastemaker, Jay Lewis, who had the dream of recreating the ideal Aussie eatery in Southern California. His 20 years of experience across multiple industries propelled him to the forefront of his chosen ventures time and time again.
Beginning with the design and apparel business, Jay created a successful brand with multiple retail locations and a strong wholesale presence in Australia’s Gold Coast. In 2009, Jay took his apparel expertise to the shores of Southern California, where he created a fashion collective that includes a women’s contemporary fashion brand and a firm specializing in immersing Australian brands into the US marketplace through PR, marketing, and distribution.
With his Australian roots firmly grounded in U.S. soil, he saw an opportunity to create a gourmet coffee and organic food experience reminiscent of those from his hometown on the Gold Coast. In 2015, he opened Outpost Kitchen to rave reviews in Southern California, and now has a second location at South Coast Metro that offers an extended menu, dinner and cocktails.
