Ivan Geldzahler is the owner and operator of Ivan and Andy's Prime Restaurant & Bar in Asbury Park, New Jersey. A native of the Jersey area, Geldzahler was the son of a kosher butcher. As a youth, Geldzahler would help his father by delivering orders of barbecue chicken to customers on the beach. Geldzahler relished the recognition and sense of community he felt from his customers when making his deliveries, something he talks about in an interview with the New Jersey Jewish News when he states "I wasn't making big bucks, but I was famous because I was the chicken boy… When you go back there [today], it's something that's lost."
