– JC & Brad
We founded KIN Windsor in 2011. Situated on the Windsor Town Green, the dining room at KIN is always set for family. Parents and kids, grandparents and grandchildren, aunts, uncles, cousins, or simply best friends – KIN has become a familiar place where people come to immerse themselves in great company over great food and drink. As family men ourselves, we created KIN Windsor to offer a dining experience that could be both comfortable and upmarket for all generations.
Originally from San Luis Obispo, JC has been a Sonoma County resident and well regarded in the local food community since 1996, serving as General Manager at several established restaurants. His relationship with the food industry began at a young age, learning the ropes by helping his Grandfather run catering trucks and small delis. Since then JC has worked in every facet of the restaurant industry from fast food to full service restaurants, including the historical F. McClintock’s in Shell Beach Ca. JC and his wife Rachel have a daughter, Katie.
Brad began his life in the hospitality industry as a 15-year-old sauté, and pizza cook in a small pizzeria in the South Bay. He went on to hold multiple positions mostly in the front of the house with various companies before resigning to pursue other goals. Working in restaurants in San Jose, Petaluma, Cotati, Santa Rosa, New York City, Roseville, and Sacramento, Brad’s true love for the restaurant has always been in the relationships forged over a great meal, and the satisfaction of a well-orchestrated dining experience. Brad and his wife Melanie have a son, Owen and daughter, Betsy.
