Rollins is a 15-year industry veteran who has manned every station in the kitchen from dishwasher on up, including time as sous chef at Hollywood Casino and Resort. Now he’ll head up the four restaurants with as many concepts under the In Good Company banner: Sanctuaria, Hendricks, Diablitos Cantina and Café Ventana.
“I’ve learned a lot during this last year working with Wil,” Rollins said. “My goal is to keep his concepts running while putting creativity in the people’s hands who are in the kitchens.”
As corporate chef, Rollins said he had to learn the business and communication skills required to oversee four different restaurants, something he looks forward to teaching others. “I’m excited to help people learn, whether from a cooking standpoint or a business standpoint,” he said. “I’m also looking forward to learning from the people under me who can further my knowledge as well.”
