Guy Fieri's show, "Tournament of Champions," is coming back for its third season, and for the first time in the show’s history, 32 participants will be competing. One of them is entrepreneur and chef Tiffany Derry.
Derry is a multi-talented entrepreneur who owns the brands Tiffany Derry Concepts, T2D Concepts, and the apparel line Derry Wear. T2D Concepts is a hospitality brand that launched Roots Chicken Shak, which serves Derry’s famous “duck fat-fried chicken.”
Raised on her family’s farm, Derry was always fascinated by the kitchen and started exploring her love of food as a child. Derry began working as an IHOP server at the age of 15 and eventually worked her way up the corporate ladder.
Later, the ambitious chef studied culinary arts at the Art Institute of Houston and worked at several restaurants before launching Tiffany Derry Concepts in 2013. Derry has previously participated in shows such as "Top Chef," "Hungry Investors," and "Bar Rescue."
