About the Team
Handlebar Diner® is a 50’s Valentines Diner that the folks from DMB and Eastmark brought out from Loveland, Colorado. This project required several hundred man hours, multiple companies and government agencies to get the job done. Chef Adam Allison and his Business Partner Kyle Hollenbeck were approached with this project in January of 2017. Although both are seasoned vets to the Restaurant and Catering business, this is nothing they have ever been a part of before. Allison and Hollenbeck love the vision of what this Diner will become and have helped create around it for the Eastmark Community.
Chef Adam has been in the Restaurant business for over 15 years. He has worked every position in the back-of-house and owned several food trucks along with one still with Hollenbeck and another partner called Left Coast Burrito. Chef Adam has put together an incredible team to spearhead this project and is excited to be the executive chef/Owner. Chef Adam is an Award winning chef who attended Le Cordon Bleu Culinary School in Scottsdale. He has been featured on Esquire TV along with local channels such as NBC 12, ABC 15, CBS 5, FOX 10 and Channel 3. Chef Adam enjoys cooking with his Southern roots, and adding a Southwest Kick. He tends to focus on Local Farmers and distributors for his food ingredients and you will notice this throughout the Handlebar Diner’s menus.
Kyle is one of three partners with Aioli Gourmet Burgers, Modern Tortilla and Left Coast Burrito. He has held roles such as Server and Bartender to Director of Marketing and Director of Operations for his Restaurants, Food trucks and Catering Companies. Kyle grew up around the restaurant business where his father worked for 35 years and his mother put in her time as well. Kyle took a brief hiatus from the restaurant industry to move into sales for companies such as Yelp.com and LivingSocial.com where he learned new skills to help small business owners manage and run their businesses. Kyle will be happy to work with you on any catering or private party you may want to have with Handlebar Diner.
