My name is Brian Parenteau and I’m the owner of Tulios Tacos & Tequila, Patio Bar & Pizza and Drynk Bar and Lounge. What inspired me to start these businesses was a culmination of being in the industry for over 15 years paired with my desire to create my own work environment based on my own experiences and understanding the surrounding community. Working in Ft Lauderdale for many years allowed me to watch market changes, demographic changes, and understand the needs of an organization like Handy. Understanding and the incessant feedback from guests inspired me to create my own brand and business that I could personally oversee to allow me to contribute back to the local community. I am excited and honored to be nominated as a 2022 HANDY Homecoming King candidate. I hope I can make an impact by contributing to this amazing organization.
