Gina Neely Net Worth $2 Million
Gina along with his husband Patrick met during high school and they were high school sweethearts. However it wasn’t until the 10 year reunion that they would meet again. Both came from failed marriages and they eventually married in 1994. After their marriage, they set off to become business partners with their combined passion for food. Prior to joining the food industry, Gina worked at the National Bank of Commerce as a branch manager and also worked for a local public relations firm, The Carter Malone Group as an events coordinator, and that experience would help their business later on.
After the creation and success of “Neely’s Bar-B-Que”, in 2008 the couple was approached by Food Network to do their own television show, on which they can showcase their dishes and secrets. After “Down Home with the Neely’s” was created, their popularity and net worth skyrocketed. They then decided to expand, opening “Neelys BBQ Parlor” in New York City.

In 2013 however, the couple decided that they were closing their Memphis locations indefinitely, but still retained the one in New York. The reason for closing the restaurants was to pursue other projects like the Foreman Weight Loss Challenge along with Neely’s new line of Green Giant foods.
The couple has also released their own cookbooks. Their first release “Down Home with Neely’s” became a New York Times Best Seller. Two years later they released “The Neely’s Celebration Cookbook: Down Home Meals for Every Occasion”.
