Fox has his day as Culinary Hall of Fame inductee

Citizen Staff Writer

Tucson-born restaurateur Sam Fox recently was inducted into the Arizona Culinary Hall of Fame.

Fox received the Culinary Ambassador Award given “influential industry promoters elevating tourism and hotel and restaurant properties in Arizona.” He was a semifinalist in 2008 and 2009 for the James Beard Foundation Outstanding Restaurateur Award.

Fox serves on the board of the Arizona Cancer Center. He also is a member of the Young President’s Organization and the philanthropic Thunderbirds, an Arizona nonprofit group that assists children and families in need.

Fox launched Fox Restaurant Concepts here in 1997 and moved its headquarters to Scottsdale four years later. The company employs more than 1,300 people in four states. Twenty-two of its 27 restaurants are in Arizona, with three in Colorado and one each in Texas and Kansas.

His 12th concept and 28th eatery – Modern Steak – is slated to open this fall in Scottsdale Fashion Square.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
