  • Published by Vedat
Jerry Parquette has been named the Food and Beverage Director of the B Resort, located in the Walt Disney World® Resort, scheduled to debut early 2014.

In his new role, Parquette will be responsible for overseeing all food and beverage operations at the new lifestyle resort in Lake Buena Vista, including the resort’s signature restaurant, American Q, the brainchild of acclaimed New York City restaurateur Jeffrey Chodorow of China Grill Management, offering guests an innovative culinary experience that will redefine classic American barbeque. In addition, he will be overseeing the Pickup - a cool and unique twist on the traditional grab-n-go including ice cream window service, pool bar, room service, and catering for meetings and events.

Parquette brings to the B Resort over 20 years of experience in the hospitality industry. In his most recent position as the Director of Food and Beverage at the 1,100–room DoubleTree by Hilton Orlando at Seaworld Resort, Parquette was responsible for upgrading and repositioning all food and beverage concepts, as well revamping the banquets department. Prior to that, he served as the Food and Beverage Executive overseeing the 400-room Sheraton North Hotel and Conference Center where he aligned food and beverage operations throughout the company with brand management and concept development. Earlier, Parquette held the position of Director of Food and Beverage at the 511-room Florida Hotel and Conference Center in Orlando and the 502-room Sheraton Safari Hotel and Suites in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. In prior positions, Parquette has mentored and hired senior level leadership, guided food and beverage departments to increase profits and guest satisfaction scores year to year, reduced food and beverage costs while raising total guest satisfaction scores, and generated ideas which were successfully implemented throughout entire brand portfolios.
