KP Events

KPlace Events & Catering provides personal service and customized event spaces while investing in the local community and giving back to the programs of The Center.

We reached out to The Center for help in hosting our annual strategic planning session. They were able to provide everything we needed for our day and really went above and beyond with impressive attention to detail. Katina was wonderfully communicative, answering all of our questions and providing helpful suggestions. We will definitely reach out again for future meetings and events.

The Center’s catering and events team is top notch and goes over and above to make every event a success from a small luncheon to a big gala. The Rotary Club of Boerne has been a long-time partner with The Center and we are happy to support their nonprofit mission while also hosting our members and friends in a great community space.

Returning home to San Antonio after 6 years abroad, Phil sought to expand on his love of cooking and attended the Culinary Institute of America which was a fantastic happenstance.

Jaan Bai, the restaurant, a result of a fantastic team effort is still number one in Battambang, Cambodia. Upon returning to the States Phil worked at several new and developing restaurants in San Antonio acting as Kitchen Manager at Pharm Table, Chef d' Cuisine at BOTIKA at the Pearl, Owner of DUO Cuisine Mobile and Chef d' Cuisine/Assistant General Manager at Maverick Whiskey. Finding his new home at The Center Boerne, Chef Phil will expand on the existing programs and help develop a new catering and events program.
