About Us

Devin and Kaytrin both grew up in the Capital region. Devin studied Culinary Arts at SCCC while Kaytrin studied Dietetics and Foodservice Management at SUNY Oneonta. After completing their schooling and getting a combined 21 years experience in the business, together they opened Crave Burgers and Frozen Yogurt (2015). Devin and Kaytrin Met in 2014 at a restaurant where Devin was the Chef and Kaytrin was serving working her way through her masters. They decided to put other life plans on hold to open Crave. 

After two years of great success at Crave they were excited to start another culinary venture which brings us to the Cuckoos Nest. After finding the location for The Nest, being set to open March 2020, the pandemic hit and this plan was put on hold. After spending a few months focusing on the Albany locations they were able to get back to Schenectady and finish this exciting project. 

They both live locally and have welcomed a son into the world. They truly value being a part of this community always finding way to give back and make all guests feel welcome and appreciated. If 2020 has taught us anything, it's to be kind to one another. Both partners in business and life, having three restaurants they created the brand Ziemann Hospitality and are frequently seen at one restaurant or another.
