Kevin - Chef/Owner

Kevin is fulfilling his dream of owning his own place. When not working, he is working at Hi Tulip.

He plays many instruments including keyboard, violin, and various percussion. He also is an avid skateboarder and occasionally has time to surf. Kevin has an old soul and couldn’t be a nicer boss. Hi Tulip says: be-all, end-all

Holly - Co-Owner

Holly...native of Daytona Beach, FL, and retired, wait...what? Retired? Nope. After delivering mail in Ormond Beach for 40 years, she is helping her son live his dream by helping as much as possible. Doing what mom’s do…grocery shop, clean, plan, pay the bills, encourage, repeat. Café owner is now on her working resume. When she can, she joins Bud on some of his travelling adventures. Holly, aka Ya-Ya, Loves, loves, loves her Grandbabies! And will hold your baby while you enjoy your meal if you let her.
Hi Tulip says: Thanks mom

Christine - Manager

Christine...boots in. Originally from Minnesota and has just recently tried grits, she will do whatever it takes to keep Hi Tulip top notch. She is the manager, and don’t you forget it. Much needed and highly appreciated role. Not only does she keep the employees, vendors, Solicitors, and owners on track, she is the barista, baker, and candlestick maker. There is nothing that she can’t or won’t do for Hi Tulip. She can bring home the bacon and fry it up in the pan. Christine has been dating Kevin for 4 years and they must have a love -hate relationship, as they love to be together and hate to be without. Not only do they work and live together, Christine is a singer in one of the bands Kevin is in. If she isn’t at Hi Tulip, well, when is she NOT at Hi Tulip. She is highly dedicated. If she does have spare time she likes to hang with her cats Watch movies and chill…(or is that gearing up for tomorrow!)
Hi Tulip says: take the bull by the horns

Bud - The Big Guy

Bud...grew up in Daytona Beach, Florida and is enjoying his retirement years by doing some travelling, hiking attending blue grass festivals, and gardening. When not on the road he loves to hang out with his 3 wonderful Grandchildren. The Hi Tulip Café is a new adventure, however. He helps in many ways as the main honey-do person. (He better, as his wife is the owner!) He fully supports his wife and son, the chef, as they all take on this family-owned and operated endeavor. Hi Tulip says: The big guy

Hi Tulip - Back of House

The talented people behind the scenes!


Chandler...from New Jersey, is very passionate about cooking and has been working as a cook for 10 years. Being very detailed oriented the plates he creates are as good to look at as they are to eat.

Hi Tulip says: our pot of gold at the end of the rainbow


Doug...is from an era of hard workers. He enjoys listening and singing along to music that keeps the back of the house in an upbeat vibe.

Hi Tulip says: he can tackle the job


Ashley...is the newest member of the team but is definitely no rookie. She is working at Hi Tulip part time during the day to fill her time from her other cooking job at a beachside restaurant. and to help alleviate some hours from Kevin, (who just needs time away, sometimes). She appeared just when the cooks needed a break. Ashley has her culinary degree from Virginia Tech and has been in the culinary industry for seven years. When not working, she enjoys the beach and making and writing her own music playing the piano. Hi Tulip says: kitchen angel


Mike...has been in the food industry for 46 years and has been with Hi Tulip Café since the groundbreaking, and is the only remaining original employee. He knows every inch of the café and receives the best all- around award. Mike keeps the restaurant clean, does the maintenance, steps in as cook or dishwasher if needed, and probably would be the president of the one million cut potatoes club, as he does a great percentage of the food prep each day. When not working, you can probably find him having a brewsky at the bar down at Woody’s. Hi Tulip says: he’s the glue that keeps us all together
