A Universal Orlando Success Story
Chef Henry – Sous Chef
Chef Henry applied to Universal Studios Florida in 1990 just months before the grand opening as he felt it was a place where he could put his love of cooking and his front-of-house and back-of-house restaurant experience to good use. He had been part of an opening team previously at a large hotel in Central Florida and was prepared to do that again when hired as a First Cook for the Production Kitchen. His background and expertise as a saucier is where he has dedicated many years of his career and those talents were put into play during the park opening process. Chef Henry enjoyed giving input and experimenting with different recipes as he and senior culinary leaders targeted which sauces and stews would be used in dishes served across the resort. In addition to his career growth, Chef Henry has seen the resort expand as well as the size of his team to nearly double in number from when he started in 1990. He was also selected to be part of the culinary team that helped to open Universal Studios Japan.
Best Career Decisions
Chef Henry considers one of his greatest successes to be the longevity and high engagement of his team. Building a personal relationship with each Team Member is important to him and has allowed him to stay in tune with their needs.
“Don’t be afraid to ask questions and make mistakes. You won’t grow if you don’t try and learn from those instances. The diversity at Universal Orlando has grown with the resort and there are opportunities for everyone here if you work hard, put in the time, and perform well.”
