Since 2014, Chef Adison Lee has translated “the art of eating” to Houston diners through the modern Japanese fare he and his kitchen crew create at the beautifully designed restaurant, KUU. While collaborating with the talented culinary team, KPC broadened Houston diners' awareness of KUU and grew its customer base by coordinating and hosting media tastings and influencer events, promoting wine and sake dinners, shooting stunning photographs of KUU's cuisine, key staff, and interior, and consistently securing news coverage from national and local media outlets. The KPC team also refined KUU's branding, designed print and digital marketing, managed social media, e-news campaigns and more.
