Our Team

Kenny Bowers – As a native New Englander, Kenny began his career by creating Daddy Jack’s Lobster & Chowder House on Greenville Avenue in Dallas. Later, in 1996 Kenny opened Lefty’s Lobster and Chowder House in Addison. He designed the menu for the restaurant and created a remarkably loyal following. After two years, Kenny sold the restaurant to a partner.
In 1998, Kenny helped to create Big Fish Little Fish. He invested in the concept, and brought his unique menu and style of hospitality to the restaurant. It almost immediately tripled in sales and profits.
In March of 1999, Kenny received an offer from the original creator and owner of Rockfish Seafood Grill. Kenny accepted the position as Partner/Corporate Chef and played a very large part in furthering the development of the concept.
After 7 years of developing and building independent concepts and 6 years as a Corporate Chef, Kenny teamed up with Bob Stegall. Together, they created KWFG and after 3 successful years, Mike Hutchinson joined the team and they opened Kenny’s Burger Joint.
