Family History

Delaware North is proud to be a family-owned-and-operated company. Over 100 years, three generations of Jacobs have guided Delaware North’s journey. Their story, and ours, is one that demonstrates that through hard work, innovation and an unwavering entrepreneurial spirit – great things can happen.  The leadership of the Jacobs family infuses our company with the values of integrity, honesty and social responsibility that make Delaware North one of the most admired hospitality companies in the world. 

Current Delaware North Companies Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Jeremy Jacobs, the son of founder Louis Jacobs, represents the second generation of the Jacobs family to own and lead the company. His three sons – Jerry, Lou and Charlie – are principals of Delaware North and are leading the company’s long-term business strategy.
