Entrenuity Welcomes Vicki Kim to Board of Directors
Entrenuity is pleased to welcome restaurant expert and business consultant, Vicki Kim, to the Entrenuity Board of Directors.
Vicki Kim's love for cooking and entertaining started from an early age, but she didn’t think to make it a career until her mid-20’s. Vicki was working in corporate consulting when her brother, Chef Edward Kim, decided to partner on creating a restaurant. In 2010, Chef Kim and his wife, Jenny, along with Vicki, and their friend Nate Chung opened their first restaurant, Ruxbin (named one of America's Top 10 Best New Restaurants by Bon Appetit and GQ Magazines), in Chicago’s Wicker Park neighborhood. Three years later, they opened their second concept, Mott St (named one of America's Top 50 Best New Restaurants by Bon Appetit), a more casual restaurant that showcases family-style fare in a relaxed environment. Most recently, they opened Mini Mott, a counter service dining spot in the Logan Square neighborhood of Chicago, centered around their nationally recognized Mott St. burger (named #1 Burger in Chicago and #7 in America by Thrillist).
Vicki knows that running a restaurant is a balancing act of great business skills and warm hospitality. She likes to build and platform businesses--especially restaurants and community oriented businesses.
Vicki has involved with Entrenuity in the past as a Restaurant Consultant and Business Coach for our food industry entrepreneurs.
She now joins us in the critical role of a member of our Board of Directors.
