LEE COUNTY, Fla. — Local chef Brian Roland is being transferred to rehabilitation to continue his recovery process following an accident at a car dealership in Naples in December.

Roland, a beloved chef and member of the SWFL culinary and charity scene, was airlifted to the hospital on Dec. 4 after an accident involving a vehicle elevator at a Ferrari dealership.

“We are hopeful that Chef Brian continues to make progress in his recovery. Chef Brian and, his wife, Nicole, thank the community for the outpouring of love and support during this difficult time in their lives,” the Roland family said in a statement on Friday.

Roland’s move to rehabilitation is the next step in his recovery following a long stay at Lee Memorial Hospital, his family said.

Crave Culinaire, the catering business Roland founded, and all of its sister companies, announced they will be returning to full capacity operations just over a month after the accident.

“As a whole, Team Crave has banded together as a family, risen to the occasion, and doubled down on their commitment to continue Chef Brian and Crave’s mission of delivering unforgettable hospitality experiences to each and every client and their guests,” company officials said in the announcement.
