Derek Marx has over 20 years of experience in the hospitality industry and has worked his way up from serving fast food to now managing Umai Aji-Ya, Naperville’s first Japanese grill. From the age of 12, Derek has been working in hospitality in the Naperville area, taking on jobs at local chains like Buona Beef, to fast casual Mexican and American grills, and most recently has spent the last 7 years at Morton’s Steakhouse.

His passion for food and how it brings people together is what inspired him and his partners to open up their flagship restaurant, Umai Aji-Ya. The restaurant, which name translates to “Simply Delicious”, is opening up in the town where Derek’s roots trace back to, and is expected to open in June 2019.
