4Lobe Events founder
4Lobe Events was created by the man behind the explosive growth of culinary tourism over the past decade, Jeff Swedarsky
Jeff founded Food Tour Corporation in 2007 for less than a hundred dollars with no financial backers, or business
partners while simultaneously working a demanding 9-5 job. Over the next 8 years, the company grew into an award winning
multi-million dollar nationwide family of companies.
As the Food Tour companies began to grow, clients began to request larger and more complex events and activities
than Food Tours, leading eventually to the establishment of 4Lobe Events.
After starting the company, Jeff began to build a team with the goal of becoming the nation's largest and most
innovative Culinary Event company. 4Lobe Events is the fastest growing segment of the FTC4Lobe Group, with dozens of Event Managers, Emcees, chefs, caterers accross the country as well as creative,
operations, and accounts team headed up by some of the best in the culinary tourism and events industry.
Jeff currently is the president of both 4Lobe and Food Tour Corporation, managing
individuals in both the DC area company headquarters and throughout the United States and Ontario, Canada.
Jeff has served for several years on the executive board of directors for the Alexandria Convention and Visitors Bureau, and is a former
board member of the DC metro region Event Planning Association. Jeff was recently named to the 2017 40 Under 40 in Alexandria, Virginia. Jeff also is the vice president and head of redevelopment
for the ASA food tour certification program.
