How It All Started

Paolo’s started as a dream of Paul’s when he was 8 years old. He knew he wanted to be a chef. Fortunately, he had a training program available at this young age--his Italian mother to cook with at home and his father to show him the restaurant business as the owner of the Golden Steer Restaurant in Kent.

Paul’s desire to become a chef and restaurant owner never wavered. He began working in the family restaurant when he was 15 years old. After high school, he completed the Food Sciences program at South Seattle Community College and offered an opportunity to help open Kirkland Roaster and Ale.
