Killen's Steakhouse

In 2015, after nearly a decade in operation, Ronnie Killen closed the doors to his original steakhouse and moved it into his grand “dream restaurant” two miles down the road. Killen's Steakhouse’s award-winning menu offers American and Japanese Wagyu, USA Prime, Texas Akaushi, and Harris Ranch All-Natural Five Diamond Beef; critics widely agree that it’s one of the best steakhouses in the country. In addition to liaising with media to secure local, regional and national attention, KPC supported the restaurant in managing social media as well as promoting, executing and photographing events, including media tastings, pairing dinners with guest vintners and brewers, and Killen's "Art of Smoke" dinner at the James Beard House in New York City. The KPC team also played an instrumental role in refining Killen's Steakhouse logo design, managing print and digital marketing collateral and e-news campaigns, and shooting professionally photographed images of its staff, cuisine and interior.
