The Jupiter Island Club is unquestionably one of the finest clubs in America. In the history of private clubs, the Jupiter Island Club is iconic. Its Membership roster since its inception and today reflects some of our nation's most notable philanthropists and industrialists who are also members of many of the country's other top clubs. After building the railroad system to South Florida in 1933, its founding family forged the Club's beginnings on the principles of privacy, casual elegance and warm and hospitable excellent service. Its style and feel are unpretentious and low-key, the antithesis of most clubs built in the last 20 years.
Not just a club but an island community, the Jupiter Island Club is on the north end of Jupiter Island in Martin County, Florida, about 30 miles north of Palm Beach. This very insular retreat is home to an 18-hole golf course with many holes on the Intricately waterway, a Main Club with formal (150 seats) and informal dining (60 seats), Golf Clubhouse (200 seats) with various styles of dining service, a 36-slip yacht basin hosting power boats up to 100', 14 fast dry tennis courts with Tennis Shop, croquet court, 200-seat theater, Flower Shop, Wine Shop, Beauty Shop, Beach Shop, and oceanfront Beach Club informal dining (175 seats), two pools, spa and fitness. The Main Club is a social hub for formal dining, breakfast and events. A portion of the Club's 52 Inn rooms are in the Main Club along with the Chef's Cupboard, which provides a retail hub for prepared foods. There are also nine cottages in the Club's lodging program.
Simply from the facilities description, you will note that the Jupiter Island Club is a complex and complicated, very private, resort style operation. The position will require a very seasoned Chef with a sophisticated management style that can lead and adapt around a range of issues over the $5M operation, helping to drive the Club into the future while being sensitive to its storied past and deep traditions. The successful candidate will be passionate about shaping the Member culinary experience, a very smart businessperson, and a seasoned professional with a deft hand at leading a culinary staff that reaches 60 employees in season. Managing up to and with the Board and Committees is a crucial talent.
