While managing spring breaks for a company, Brett discovered a passion for the industry, and that’s when he decided to work independently.

What sets Brett’s ventures apart is not just their growth but their commitment to professionalism.

All while managing multiple different valet locations. Brett boasts of his business as synonymous with professional driver-based solutions or valet services in Chicago.

Going forward, Brett plans to expand his spring break business into an event powerhouse, offering customized packages that will prioritize student experience in South Florida. He aspires to transform Backyard into a weekly haven for thousands of students, establishing his brand as the go-to for planning grand spring break events nationwide.

Reflecting on his journey, Brett emphasizes the significance of networking, professionalism, and operational fineness. His story, from a humble beginning to an accomplished entrepreneur with multiple ventures, is an inspiration for many willing to venture down this path. Considering his spring breaks and valet parking ventures, Brett is more than just a young entrepreneur shaping his dreams. He is making a mark in the event scene in both the bustling city of Chicago and the sun-soaked beaches of South Florida.
