Kevin Kelley Aims to Elevate Kitchen + Kocktails With New Chicago Location



Kevin Kelley is a man whose desire was to create an experience not only that he can be proud of but something his employees and guests can both be proud of. For a while, he was the guy in the background but after a viral video gained tracks, Kevin officially became the face of his brand. As the owner of Kitchen + Kocktails, which first opened in Dallas, Texas, he curated a brand that set a standard in fine comfort food dining that eventually led him to open up a second location in Chicago, Illinois. Throughout this process, he has been able to not only employ hundreds of minorities but instill in them the pride for themselves and the business that he does. The new Downtown Chicago location will feature an elevated experience in a 10,000 square feet facility.
