A news release from Harper House announced Tuesday morning that the independent dining restaurant in Cadiz will be temporarily closing as it undergoes a change in day-to-day operations and management. During this time, Triplets will remain open for business.
The release did not provide a reopening date; however, upon reopening, Harper House will be managed by Rob and Kellen King, from Benton.
The couple have extensive experience in the restaurant business, including Kellen previously served as a dining room manager and Rob as food and beverage director at a restaurant in Grand Rivers.
Established in 2009 by Nelson Green, Harper House experienced success in downtown Hopkinsville before relocating to a larger property in Cadiz in June 2017.
Green, operating partner, and Brett Clayton, food and beverage director, each decided it was time for a new direction, the release states.
“I’ve been doing this for 11 years,” Green said. “I feel I have a lot of great memories and success, but I’m in a transitional phase and I’m ready to get out in the world and see what’s next for me.”
Clayton echoed that sentiment saying in the release he has a new family and is ready to challenge himself.
“I’m young enough and I’m ready to test the waters,” he said.
The Kings are excited for the new opportunity and will implement some changes, including reducing the menu and focusing on guest relations.
“Everyone that walks through the door is an important guest,” Kellen said. “It’s about the hospitality.”
“We’re going to take off some menu items and let our prep people focus on doing what they do best,” Rob said. “We’re not necessarily going to change the menu, just reduce it.”
Harper House is located at 123 DJ Everett Drive in Cadiz.
