About the Author:

HOLLY ARNOLD KINNEY The Fort Restaurant Denver, Colorado 80465 Holly Arnold Kinney and her brother Keith were raised in a replica of Bent s Old Fort, now the world-famous Fort restaurant built by her father, acclaimed restaurateur Sam Arnold, located in the scenic foothills outside of Denver, Colorado. The Arnold family lived on the second level while the first floor housed the restaurant. As a young girl, Ms. Kinney learned the restaurant industry through holding many positions in the family business including busser and tortilla girl. Frequent trips with her father to London, Vienna, Switzerland and Mexico helped Kinney develop culinary knowledge and a worldly perspective at an early age. In 1981, Kinney founded Arnold Media Services (AMS), a public relations firm specializing in specialty food products and the restaurant industry. Swiss company Jacobs Suchard USA, makers of Toblerone Brand, hired Arnold Media Services to manage all promotions and media relations in the United States. This account launched AMS into the national and international markets. For more than 20 years, AMS provided public relations, marketing, and advertising and promotion services for local, national and international clientele including Nestle Specialty Foods Division, Perugina Chocolates from Italy, the National Bison Association, Hatch Chile Company, Mrs. Fields Cookies, Colavita and Monari Federzoni Balsamic Vinegar. In 2001, Arnold Media Services became the in-house public relations, advertising and graphic design agency for The Fort restaurant. The passion that Kinney developed for history at a young age inspired her to partner with her father in founding The Tesoro Cultural Center, a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization committed to protecting and making available to the community the artistic treasures and history of the American past in the Southwest. Bringing to life the traditions and events that shaped Colorado s history and the Southwest s heritage, Kinney has created a series of living history events, including: The Indian Market & Powwow, The Spanish Market & 1830s Rendezvous and Farmer s Market, The Historic Dinner and Lecture Series, and the Christmas Eve Las Posadas reenactment. The Tesoro Cultural Center offers historic tours of The Fort and provides historic interpreters to present the Mountain Man & Woman Trunk Show for K-12 students at area schools. In 2000, Kinney returned to her roots at The Fort, becoming her father s business partner and 49% owner of the landmark restaurant. Active in the day-to-day management of the restaurant, Kinney was the driving force behind the Fort s internet marketing and technology. She hired a full time Web master and advertising designer for The Fort s web site and recently markets The Fort through Facebook, YELP , Open Table, TV station web sites and other social media. Holly Arnold Kinney became the sole owner and proprietress of The Fort LLC in December of 2006 after the passing of founder, Samuel P. Arnold. Like her father, she is passionate about history and cuisine, including the history of recipes and culinary traditions of the 16th, through the 19th century.
