Hello, We are Kennedy Concepts

We know how to bring ideas to life…

Our History

Founded in 1999 by Chad Kennedy, Kennedy Concepts Inc. now encompasses four restaurants in the East Tennessee area. The privately owned Gatlinburg based company has a long-standing history of success in the restaurant industry.

Since 1999, Kennedy Concepts, Inc. has maintained a sense of humor and enjoyment while creating high quality, successful restaurants. We have a simple, honorable philosophy when it comes to what we do. We love food and we want to share it. Few other paths in life provide what ours has provided us: the unique ability to truly connect with people every day and share with our passion for the experience that breaking bread together can deliver. It is a simple philosophy but we see daily how it translates into memorable dining experiences for our guests, warm connected interactions with our staff and more often than not because food is the common ingredient, simply remarkable experiences for all of us.

Our Vision

Almost 16 years ago in 1999 with a slightly naïve but very earnest desire to create a different kind of restaurant. Kennedy Concepts Inc. has conviction and passion, we knew we wanted it to be about great people and great food, in equal measure. This conviction became a mission that steers us today: bring together caring teams of professionals who deliver extraordinary service & food to our guest. To us your family and were out to prove it every time you visit us.

Our Mission

The Kennedy family of restaurants offers many different cuisines and traditions, but common to all is an obsession with quality food and superior service that’s reflected in every aspect of the Guest experience. Our philosophy hasn’t changed much over the years. The drive still comes from a passion for excellence, a focus on innovation and attention to detail and quality in everything we do. It starts and ends with food!

Now with 16 years into our journey our mission is more important to us than ever. Our guest are welcomed and served by passionate individuals who share our values and who derive their inspiration, motivation and pride from making people happy.
