The Four Friends Story
It all began one day when four Stapleton friends (and next-door neighbors) wanted to take their families to a good brunch that was in the neighborhood and family friendly. Realizing the options with those qualities were limited, the four friends began hatching a plan, and with a lot of love and patience, Four Friends Kitchen was born.
Four Friends Kitchen is Stapleton’s only locally owned restaurant dedicated to serving up great Southern-inspired, contemporary American comfort food for breakfast, lunch, and weekend brunch. We are excited to be able to offer Stapleton and surrounding communities an open-air rooftop dining option, child-friendly perks, and a cheerful full-service breakfast in the town center all week long. Welcome to our restaurant. We hope you will love it as much as we do!
Four Friends Kitchen is locally owned and operated by four Stapleton next-door neighbors: Kurt and Sarah Pletcher and Tim and Genefer Thornton. Genefer is the General Manager and handles day-to-day operations. Genefer’s passion for the restaurant business began at an early age, bussing tables at her family’s restaurants just about as soon as she could walk. She was also raised on Southern favorites from her family’s Georgia roots. Following a successful 14-year career as a financial analyst for the Navy and Air Force, she is excited to be back in the restaurant world.
