Jane & Scott Wolfe
Founders of Melba’s PoBoys
JANE AND SCOTT WOLFE are the founders of Melba’s PoBoys, recognized in 2016 as the fastest-growing company in Louisiana by Inc. magazine and by GQ magazine as one of the best restaurants in the most unexpected places. Starting as teenage entrepreneurs in 1982, the Wolfes founded and operated some of New Orleans’ most iconic and fastest-growing businesses, including Wagner’s Meat markets and Wolfman Construction.
A graduate of Harvard Divinity School, Jane also credits higher education for providing her with a broader, richer perspective on the finer connections between business, politics, and religion that drive a company’s success.
Over the course of their business career, the Wolfes’ businesses generated hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue, received national recognition, and employed more than three hundred people.
