About Us - Fiorella's Kansas City

About Us

welcome to the family

We’re a fourth-generation family business. Russ Fiorella started it all with a small storefront barbecue in 1957, and we’ve grown to serve guests at five Kansas City restaurants and ship barbecue all over the country. But it wasn’t enough. We wanted a place where we could host truly special events. Somewhere big groups could celebrate, and big memories could be made. Somewhere that had room for the largest gatherings but still felt like home. Enter: Fiorella’s, the newest chapter in our long history of real hospitality.

Meet our chef

Chef Chris Hall is passionate about two things: food and creating the best spread for your particular event. Before becoming our head catering chef, Chris spent time in the hotel industry, where he perfected the art of the custom event menu. He’s constantly expanding our catering offerings and experimenting with new flavors—all to our guests’ benefit. Bring him your best event-menu challenge; he can handle it.
