With the money collected from the shows, Valastro was able to purchase several valuable assets. His most expensive asset is a house in New Jersey, the value of which exceeds $1.3 million.

Buddy Valastro was born in 1977, in Hoboken, New Jersey. When he was 11 years old, Valastro started working at “Carlo’s Bake Shop”, a bakery owned by his father. Valastro’s father died in 1994 and as a result of this, Buddy became the owner of the bakery at the age of 17. It was in this bakery where Valastro launched his famous “Cake Boss” reality series. “Cake Boss” proved to be so popular that it opened many business opportunities for the Valastro family. “Carlo’s Bakery” expanded to 5 locations in New Jersey, that is in Hoboken, Ridgewood, Morristown, Westfield and Red Bank.

Considered to be among the 50 most influential people in Hudson’s County, Buddy Valastro went on to open other businesses as well. Currently, he is focused on running “Buddy V’s Events”, which is a company, co-owned with Jeffrey Spivack, that provides catering and event planning. In addition to this, Valastro is an owner of “Buddy V’s Ristorante”, his very first restaurant venture, located in Las Vegas. The restaurant enjoys a 4 star out of 5 rating, as well as a large attendance.

Buddy Valastro is a truly busy entrepreneur. As previously mentioned, Valastro is currently a host and main star of three cooking series. However, more recently, in 2013, he launched yet another television show called “Buddy’s Bakery Rescue”, also known as “Bakery Boss”, where Buddy tries to help “Friendly’s Bake Shop”, a bakery which is struggling with finances. The show has a similar format to that of “Kitchen Nightmares” run by Gordon Ramsey.
