After a twelve year run, Celita Bullard, The Feed Store owner decided it was time to let go and carefully select who would be the next generation of the restaurant. Upon conclusion of a lengthy business courtship, May 13, 2015 The Feed Store changed hands and became urban foodie feed store.
New Owners:Kathleen B. McQueen and Michele K. Tompkins aim to shake things up in the historic College Park community.
A business partnership formulated in 2014 with Kathleen B. McQueen (aka- Wineaux Kat). Kat's love affair with wine, beer, cocktails, food, and travel was quickly taking over as she faced retirement from corporate America. The desire to unveil her passion to open a European style deli was becoming greater.
However, it was an exchange of ideas and discussions about the industry that led to the "light bulb flash" to create a partnership to open a restaurant. After 27 years working in an IT/ project management role it became apparent, Kat was ready to make that change. It was time to follow her dreams, dreams that began with her beloved mother whose passion for cooking and food led Kat from a young age on a lifetime culinary journey. Her quest for knowledge and education in the world of wine, beer, and mixology is a never-ending story.
Chef Michele's globally influenced re-imagined southern cuisine and Wineaux Kat's craft cocktail creations and bar menu style will surely display a new creative swagger based on the foundation of Historic College Park's The Feed Store.
