FRED BOLLACI ENTERPRISES CHARTER MEMBER RESTAURANTS/CHEFS FOR 2015-16:

Charter Membership replaces Signature Membership from 2014-15 and is a distinct honor reserved for a select few outstanding establishments whose owners go “above and beyond” in their dedication. Charter Members are my brand ambassadors–just as I am theirs. Our philosophies of commitment to the highest quality, dedication, and to customers’ overall satisfaction coincide are of the utmost importance. My vision is that Charter Members will be a closely knit “family” of dedicated professionals and all-around great people.

I would like to thank and welcome my inaugural Charter Members for 2015. I am very excited and honored to have a great and growing group of passionate, committed chefs, restaurant & hotel owners, and artisans to share their passion and commitment to quality and excellence, as well as to my healthy-gourmet lifestyle right here on my website for my fans and followers. Charter Membership is available on an annual basis, and affords this “family” unique access to numerous benefits of Fred Bollaci Enterprises as well as the ability to communicate directly with our audience and showcase our mutual passion for high quality, healthy, gourmet cuisine and hospitality. Savvy diners can be assured an excellent “Golden Palate™” experience when dining at or visiting any of my Charter Members and should please mention Fred Bollaci when visiting.  Charter Members are Golden Palate Partners invited to be featured in the Charter Member blog on this website, talking about their healthy-gourmet cuisine, and the latest happenings in their kitchens! New Charter Members will have the option to have a professionally-produced video like our inaugural Signature Members have.

Having lived at least part-time in the Sunshine State for 25 years, I have made a lot of connections with great chefs and proprietors and am constantly checking out new places and making new connections with lots of great people. This Florida section will be debuting this fall along with my Golden Palate™ Appetite Column in VENU Magazine all about top chefs/restaurants in Florida, and will be THE “go-to” guide for healthy-gourmet dining and lifestyle in Florida’s best restaurants, and will give my audience the opportunity to really get to know my growing family of Golden Palate Partners in Florida. Florida Charter Chef is by invitation only, and is a great opportunity to align with Fred Bollaci Enterprises and gain considerable exposure to my audience of savvy, health-conscious consumers for less cost than full Membership. Charter Chefs gain quarterly access to my audience and are invited to share recipes, and latest goings on in their establishments, and any Charter Chef has the option to upgrade to Charter Membership at any time to enjoy the additional benefits (first-time video, and personalized consultation and access to Fred).
