TORONTO — With Michelin’s latest guides unveiled in early 2022, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts continues its longstanding culinary leadership with the most Michelin stars held by a single luxury hospitality brand, with 28 stars across 21 restaurants in 16 hotels around the world.

“Restaurants and bars are core to the Four Seasons brand. This latest recognition from the Michelin Guide is a testament to the talent and dedication of our chefs and their teams, furthering our drive to innovate and elevate our culinary experiences,” says Christian Clerc, president, Hotels and Resorts. “In 2022, we will serve more than 20 million customers in our restaurants and bars. As we expand our business in the years ahead, we will continue to make strategic investments in our global restaurant and bar portfolio to solidify our leadership position in this space.”

To lead Four Seasons into this next phase of growth, the company has appointed Kimberly Grant to Global Head of Restaurants and Bars and senior vice-president of Food and Beverage. In this newly created role, Grant will oversee the company’s extensive food-and-beverage operations. Grant will also take the helm of Four Seasons Restaurant and Bar Group, with a mandate to push the envelope of innovative restaurant and bar concepts, elevate existing outlets, attract top talent and unify the operations process across the brand’s global portfolio.

“As we continue to invest in the culinary arm of our business, we are incredibly proud to welcome Kimberly to our team as she brings decades of leadership experience building hospitality brands,” says Clerc. “Her expertise in strategic growth and operating best-in-class, innovative concepts, paired with her passion for food and beverage, make Kimberly the perfect addition to our team, ensuring that our restaurants and bars continue playing a central role in Four Seasons future vision.”

“I’m thrilled to be joining Four Seasons during a period of such tremendous growth,” says Grant. “Throughout my personal and professional travels, Four Seasons restaurants have consistently exceeded my expectations when it came to both quality and experience. I’m honoured to have the opportunity to re-imagine what excellence, creativity and innovation can look like across the brand’s restaurants and bars and meaningfully strengthen our appeal as an independent dining destination for new and existing guests alike.”
