Kelly Hunt is the founder and owner of Eats Fredericksburg.
Let's get to know Kelly.
Best Advice for Others:
Be happy for others’ success. There’s plenty to go around.
What a Competitor Would Say About Me:
I am always willing to help them if they need it. I do not believe that I have “competitors”. I have colleagues in the restaurant business. I take my own advice. There is plenty to go around and we can all learn from and help each other to succeed.
TCBY- The Countries Best Yogurt! It was on Rt. 3 next to my Mom’s hair salon (Jan Tan & Hair Co.). I was 15. I loved it. I learned how to decorate cakes there, and ate lots of free frozen yogurt.
People I Admire:
Jose Andreas for his charity work through his success in the restaurant industry. Maynard J. Keenan for his creative genius and ability to create many successful businesses in various fields all around his life’s passions (and for his musical genius). Last but not least, my kids. My son, Gabe and my daughter, Evan continue to amaze me with their kindness and their drive to follow their passions.
Best Life Experience:
That’s a long list! I’d have to say having my kids for sure. Most recently, I became a GG. My son and daughter-in-law had a baby girl, she is literally the best.
What Makes Me Passionate About My Work:
The people and the community. I love helping others and the restaurants facilitates that in many ways. From my employees, to our guests and giving back to the community.
Something I’d Never Do Again:
Try to open a new restaurant without a general contractor.
Favorite Vacation Spot:
Another long list! I love to travel and there are so many places that I want to go to. So far, my two favorites are Arizona and Sint Maarten.
