Scott Kuhn, proprietor and ... [cached]

Scott Kuhn, proprietor and founder of Driftwood Restaurants and Catering, says he has already contracted out three of his spaces - Washington Place Bistro & Inn in Little Italy, Hodge's on East Sixth Street downtown and Cibreo Italian Kitchen and its adjacent 165-seat facility Cibreo Privato in Playhouse Square - for the week of the convention.

"We are very happy about that, to have that behind us and to start the preparation side of it," says Kuhn, who adds that his group worked with contacts in Washington, D.C., to get a jump on renting out the space. "With all the challenges that come along with the convention, whether it's parking or security or the challenges to get a delivery truck to the store, when you have a contract you are at peace knowing that you are going to get a contracted dollar amount that you are comfortable with."
On the catering side of his business - the fastest-growing area of Driftwood's culinary empire - Kuhn says his group continues to meet with representatives and delegates on what their needs will be. "Catering is sort of the last piece of the puzzle for us to figure out," he says.
Driftwood Group catered events for the RNC selection committee when they came to town last summer.
"[I expect] to do a lot of that at Playhouse Square when the RNC comes back next July," Kuhn says. "Just as [anyone else] who lives in Cleveland, I am really thrilled that the convention is coming to Cleveland. Because if we do this well, we can be a convention city for years to come. It's very important for us as a city."
Kuhn says there are people on the ground now trying to secure every possible place in Cleveland - both for their own use for events as well as for others' use as third-party promoters.
"A lot of [the latter] are D.C.-driven or convention-driven," he says.

Scott Kuhn, principal partner of Driftwood Restaurants and Catering, will lead the project. He says the new eatery, about a half-dozen blocks from the group's popular restaurant Hodge's, will complement the PlayhouseSquare dining scene rather than steal from its own customer base.

Scott Kuhn, owner of Driftwood Restaurants and Catering, said his operation's foray into the lunch catering business began a little more than a year ago, shortly before its catering command center - Rothschild Farms - opened in the PlayhouseSquare District.

"Lunch was one of the latter pieces to come into catering, and we're trying to expand upon that," Kuhn said.
He attributes the palatable margins as a motivating influence for beefing up this line of business, which is why Driftwood is planning a more assertive outreach with the corporate segment.
"It's also really about cultivating deeper relationships with the clients you serve at other functions, and creating new relationships with others," he said.
Kuhn and co-owner Chris Hodgson are in discussions with other businesses about emulating a relationship similar to that of Driftwood's biggest client, Cleveland law firm Calfee, Halter & Griswold, Kuhn said.
