LOCATED IN THE HEART OF

HISTORIC DOWNTOWN MCKINNEY, TEXAS

My goal with Sugarbacon Proper Kitchen is to create a fun but competitive place to work and to grow as a boutique restaurant group.

Partner & Executive Chef

Meet Don Flores, Partner & Executive chef of Sugarbacon Proper Kitchen.

He studied at the French Culinary Institute in New York City then went to work at restaurants in New York City like; Morimoto, Le Bernardin, Momofuku Ssam Bar, Mesa Grill…the list goes on.

After working in New York City, Don teamed up with long time friend and now managing partner, Michael Kim, to create his own dream of owning & operating his very own restaurant group.

He loves the ambience of Sugarbacon and as a pork lover, the namesake absolutely sounds delicious. He goes on to say, “the location is amazing, being in the heart historic downtown McKinney…one of the most beautiful city in texas in my opinion.”

Don loves the fact that McKinney has that super small town texas vibe but still super foodie.

He says, “Harvest was one of my absolute favorite places to eat and the downtown square as favorite place to hangout.”

General Manager

Meet Herman Benefield, the general manager of Sugarbacon Proper Kitchen. Herman has 33 years experience in the service industry and has had the privilege of working for true titans of the industry like; Jack Baum, Mariel Hemingway, Sams Cafe at the Crescent…the list goes on.

He has been with Sugarbacon Proper Kitchen for two and a half years and loves that Sugarbacon is a place of healing. Herman says that, “Nothing’s more healing than serving with some of the finest people in the city of McKinney as well as North Texas.”

We couldn’t agree more.

Herman's favorite thing to do in McKinney is walk the beautiful downtown square while enjoying a cigar.

My goal is that Sugarbacon is to perform up to its potential by giving people a quality experience each and every time they grace our doors. And also to be a good neighbor, while not getting caught up in competition. There are enough accolades to go around for everyone.
