More about Kell Duncan:
Skyler is joined by Kell Duncan, Partner, and Co-founder of The Churchill in Downtown Phoenix on this episode of The SKYLER IRVINE Show.
Kell was born and raised in the Phoenix area. His favorite restaurants in the area are Restaurant Progress, Breadfruit & Rum Bar, and CIBO. He loves to go to the Suns games and hanging out downtown. He also enjoys the Crescent Ballroom and The Van Buren for live music.
His first job was at his family farm, Duncan Family Farms. He stated that growing up on a farm is an experience in itself. His dad, Arnott Duncan, has inspired him throughout the years and has had a major impact on who he is today.
Kell states that the biggest obstacle that he has had to overcome is people doubting him and having to be able to believe in himself. He also says it is hard to push past what is easy, and more enjoyable short term, to get long term gain. His favorite quote is “nothing worth having or doing is easy”
The advice he gives to those looking to take a similar career path is to not take no for an answer and never quit. Just keep pushing through and working towards your goal. You are closer than you think.
The Churchill opened September of 2018.
