Kevin Walter is the youngest of 11 children and grew up in the family business—an iconic Chicago hot dog stand founded in 1971. Eventually, Kevin became a partner with two of his brothers, Tom and Larry, in the hot dog business, growing the venture into three locations before spawning Tasty Catering in 1989.
In addition to Tasty Catering, Kevin, his two brothers and several Tasty Catering employees founded T.F. Processors, a contract manufacturer of baked goods; That’s Caring, a socially responsible gift company; nuphorIQ, a creative marketing company; Touhy Capital, a funding company for the Walter family of businesses; and several real estate venture companies. In 2012, Kevin, along with his brother Larry, was inducted into the University of Illinois-Chicago Entrepreneurial Hall of Fame where they joined their brother Tom who was a 2011 inductee.
After attending a Get in The Game workshop in the fall of 2011, Kevin helped set up the Great Game of Business at Tasty Catering. After a year of “playing The Game” and seeing the positive impact had on the Tasty Catering’s staff and the bottom line, Kevin decided to become a Great Game of Business coach.
Together, Kevin and Andrea, his wife of 19 years, have two wonderful daughters, Ellen, 15, and Kelly, 12.
