New York-based entrepreneur and wellness expert Eugene Remm builds businesses based on his passion for food, beverage and fitness — with the ultimate goal of creating authentic, lifestyle-driven experiences. Remm’s sharp creative direction and flair for crafting brands that resonate combine with a business strategy that balances structure with culture in unique concepts. His companies — which house a combined 1,000+ employees — including Catch Hospitality Group (Catch Restaurants, Lexington Brass) and boxing-inspired group fitness concept Rumble, have both achieved notable success as bi-coastal, multi-market operations.
Catch Hospitality Group, formerly EMM Group, was founded in 2006 by Eugene Remm and Mark Birnbaum. CHG quickly became the East Coast’s most successful restaurant, nightlife, lifestyle and event management company. Since that time, CHG has built a solid reputation as leaders in the industry, developing the organization into a multi-faceted hub for the successful growth and management of hospitality venues.
Catch Hospitality Group has pioneered dynamic hospitality experiences by using food, service and vibe to create seamless transitions between dining, nightlife and entertainment. With a focus on culture and brand, Remm has propelled globally-influenced seafood restaurant Catch (2011) from a standalone NYC flagship to an international phenomenon with successful locations in L.A., Playa del Carmen and Las Vegas, with additional outposts slated for 2019. Most recently, CHG welcomed a new partner — entrepreneur and owner of the largest private restaurant corporation in the U.S. — Tillman Fertitta.
On a mission to disrupt traditional group fitness, Remm co-founded Rumble (2016) — one of the fastest-growing fitness companies in America — with partners Noah Neiman, Andy Stenzler and Anthony DiMarco.
Rumble is a group fitness company with 10 locations currently open in NYC (5), LA, Washington DC, Philadelphia and SF (2). Rumble was founded in January 2017 as a boxing-inspired group fitness concept in the heart of Chelsea in New York City. The experience is a 45-minute, 10 round, full-body strength training and conditioning workout crafted around specially designed water-filled, teardrop-style boxing bags. In November 2019, Rumble launched its second concept, Rumble Training, in New York and San Francisco utilizing the same fundamental principles as Rumble Boxing, but swapping out the boxing bags for custom Technogym treadmills. Rumble is backed by industry leader Equinox, the operator of 92 upscale, full-service clubs across the world and is poised for rapid growth in the coming years.
