Seasoned chef has catered to celebs including Michael J. Fox, Wayne Gretzky, Kat Williams, Michael Jordan, Brett Michaels, Adam Sandler and more

Miss Augusta, part of the Hoffmann Family of Companies, announced today that the 105-foot luxury yacht recently hired Donald Tadlock as its head chef. Drawing upon 25 years of culinary arts expertise, Tadlock will lead the charge in crafting distinctive themed menus, devising specialty recipes, overseeing galley management, and formulating dishes that guarantee both diversity and excellence for customers.

“Don has elevated every facet of the guest experience from exquisitely prepared meals to themed dinners—and engaging meet and greets with customers,” said Jenny Gezella, president of Miss Augusta.

Before joining the team at Miss Augusta, Tadlock honed his culinary skills at Viking Cruises, where his passion for cooking on the water was ignited. During his tenure, he had the privilege of preparing meals for a range of high-profile celebrities, including Michael J. Fox, Wayne Gretzky, Kat Williams, Michael Jordan, Brett Michaels and Adam Sandler. Additionally, Tadlock received culinary education and training under the guidance of renowned chefs such as John Castro and Omar Hafidi.

“For years, I’ve worked to delight palates on dry land, and now I aim to do the same on the water,” shared Chef Donald Tadlock. “My passion for cooking aboard boats has deep roots, thanks to my mother who used to take me on riverboat cruises across the country. It’s been a dream of mine since I was a child to cook for a high-profile yacht like the Miss Augusta.”

Experience Chef Donald Tadlock’s culinary creations by reserving your next voyage on the Miss Augusta. New holiday menus are now available, and the yacht is currently booking holiday parties, as well as private events, weddings and more. Custom menus are available for private events upon request.

Hoffmann Commercial Real Estate (HCRE), part of Hoffmann Family of Companies (HF Companies), announces the sale of a portion of its downtown Naples real estate portfolio to M Development for an undisclosed price. This monumental transaction, the largest in HF Companies’ history, is a strategic move for the family equity firm.

HF Companies and the Hoffmann family remain committed to the people of Southwest Florida and will remain one of the largest employers in the region, with more than 2,000 employees. Following this transaction, HF Companies continues to own more than twenty properties in the Naples area, including ten industrial sites, Hertz Arena, Port O Call Marina, The Old Collier Golf Club, and over 1,000 acres of agricultural growing sites.

HCRE first made headlines in October 2015 with its real estate acquisitions on Fifth Avenue South. In recent years, HF Companies’ investment strategy has shifted from a primary focus on real estate to include investment in businesses across nine additional sectors: agriculture, aviation, financial services, hospitality, industrial manufacturing, marine, media & marketing, professional services, and transportation.

“We are proud of the impact we’ve made on Fifth Avenue South, a world-class destination that rivals avenues and boulevards around the world,” states Greg Hoffmann, Principal & CEO of HCRE and co-CEO of HF Companies. “While the time has come to pass the ownership torch on some of our local real estate holdings, we are committed to growing our impact through further investment in Southwest Florida businesses and will continue to maintain the ‘Hoffmann Standard’ across all our holdings.”

The HF Companies investment philosophy centers around finding good companies, properties, and people and helping make the products and services delivered even better. In 2022-2023, HF Companies made 13 investments, including Linstol, a Naples-based supplier of in-flight passenger products, and the bolt-on MNH Sustainable Cabin Services. Additional investments include Wayne Manufacturing, RMC Destination Management Company, JED Transportation, Shepler’s Mackinac Island Ferry, plus a range of hospitality, marine, and media companies.

“This transaction represents an exciting new chapter for our firm to invest in even more companies and management teams that share our values systems on culture and performance,” shares Geoff Hoffmann, co-CEO of HF Companies. “SW Florida has proven to be a world-class destination and will remain an integral part of our portfolio.”

“Naples has become our home, and we are not leaving town. Our real estate properties are very visual but a small part of our overall family investment strategy and portfolio,” states David Hoffmann, Founder and Chairman of HF Companies. “HF Companies, under Greg and Geoff’s leadership, will continue to invest in Naples and Southwest Florida through the purchase of new businesses to join the Hoffmann Family of Companies as we expand our interests.”
