(by Shanken News Daily) Florida International University (FIU) has named its hospitality school the Chaplin School of Hospitality and Tourism Management, honoring Southern Wine & Spirits’ chairman and CEO Harvey Chaplin and family. “Southern Wine & Spirits and the Chaplin family are passionate supporters of FIU and the superior hospitality management education we offer,” said FIU President Mark Rosenberg. “This naming recognizes that commitment and augurs an even stronger partnership going forward.” Proceeds from Southern’s Food Network South Beach Wine & Food Festival benefit the school, whose state-of-the-art facilities include the Southern Wine & Spirits Beverage Management Center, a 4,500-square-foot facility that was built in 1999 and offers the latest technology for beverage tasting and analysis.
