I'd like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for allowing me to represent the Greater Baton Rouge Chapter as its President and to introduce myself. I am Director of Operations for City Group Hospitality and have been in the restaurant industry for 30 years. Most recently, I transitioned from a partner in Beausoleil Restaurant and Bar and Christina's Restaurant to Operations Manager for my new group.
The pandemic has been a struggle for everyone, and I, unfortunately, wasn't exempt from its wrath. I incorporated one of my restaurants into the new group and bid farewell to Christina's. It's taken both a financial and emotional toll.
As the Chapter President, I am keeping tabs on all the resources that are available and at your disposal. In the meantime, we will continue to have virtual meetings to keep everyone abreast of chapter business and fundraising. I look forward to seeing everyone soon!
