Kim Wood & Coco Coig
A Miami native, Kim developed a love for hospitality and entertaining growing up beside a family of culturally diverse cooks. An avid home cook, a collector of cookbooks and a love for travel, later fueled her curiosity of the restaurant industry. The opportunity to join the culinary world presented itself in 2002 when she partnered with James Beard recipient and renowned chef Norman Van Aken as an investor/partner. Opening Mundo Coral Gables, Norman’s Los Angeles, Norman’s Ritz Carlton Orlando, and Norman’s 180 in the historic Colonnade Hotel. The ultimate accolade of this work was a 2019 James Beard nomination for Best Restaurant in the Country for Norman’s Ritz Carlton. Kim also founded the hospitality management group; Twin Flames Hospitality. Recently, she invested in Boondocks Restaurant Daytona Beach Florida, with plans to expand the concept to a variety of Florida marina locations.
Coco was born and raised in Madrid, Spain. He studied business at the University of Miami. Afterwards he followed a passion to become a commercial airline pilot and worked for 12 years based in Doha, Qatar. After years of travel visiting over 90 countries and immersing himself in the food and culture of his travels, he realized his dream to become a restauranteur. Today, Coco is the owner/partner of Wynwood’s beloved Le Chick.
Kim and Coco are excited to present Wynwood, with their concept of elevated gourmet sandwiches and BBQ in a fast casual design concept - AND.... if you glance to the back of the restaurant look for the door to the meat locker where you may spot a very hidden secret space!
