Why Kid Rip’s?
We wanted to create Kid Rip’s as a memory to our Father and the type of man he was. He was a good man, the kind of man you wanted to spend time with and you knew he wanted to spend time with you. Kid Rip’s is a place where you are welcomed with family and friends. Stop in for a minute, sit down and grab a bite to eat, or take something out. We treat everyone like family.
Who was Kid Rip?
Believe it or not, Kid Rip was a tattoo on our fathers arm. Kid Rip was a boxer too, but the tattoo became synonymous with our father. Kid Rip did not become a champion, but, to us, our father was a champion. So, throughout our fathers life he became known as Kid Rip. He was always a man of his word and provided support to help anyone be their best.
