Kim Millwood has been in the hospitality business for over 25 years. She has worked every position in the restaurant business from busser to cook to General Manager. Her love of the industry started with her father’s enthusiasm for working with the public as a St. Louis Missouri Police Officer. He showed her how important it was to be able to adapt to different situations and personalities quickly. Learning this skill young in life gave her a huge advantage for success in the restaurant world.
Kim has taken advantage of her skills over time and has worked in some of America’s most iconic settings. Some of her adventures and work experiences have lead her to: The Denali Range of Alaska, Lake Powell Utah and The Rocky Mountains in Vail Colorado.
During her late teens into her early 20’s she dragged raced cars. Not only did she drag race, but, she did a lot of the work on the engine herself. She insisted on knowing the ins and outs of the machine. This gave her more knowledge of the car and gave her more control on the track.
In 2008 Kim met Mark while opening The Arrabelle, a brand new 5 Star resort in Vail Colorado. She started as a server but quickly moved into a leadership role within months of opening. Not long after opening The Arrabelle she was asked to join the management team with The Savory Group. Internationally trained Chef and Restaurateur Thomas Salamunovich took her under his wing and she became part of his management team as well as becoming his construction assessor for his new 7 million dollar restaurant. She handled all punch list items for this very elaborate hotel restaurant. During her time with The Savory group she learned more than she could of ever dreamed of.
Kim soon realized she definitely wanted to and could take her skills and become an entrepreneur herself. From that knowledge and help from her husband Mark, they created That Boy Good. Rated Top 10 places to eat in San Diego. Leader on Yelp, Trip Advisor, Google and many more review sites. Last year they were filmed on the Travel Channel, Giggin and Grubin and many more local TV and Newspaper ads. Kim has become a very good marketer and a respected part of the Oceanside Community. She currently serves on the Board for Main Street Oceanside and is a Commissioner for the Oceanside Economic Development Community. Her proudest accomplishment by far is her son Victor.
