Our Story

Venue Forty|50 is a natural progression of concepts developed by Todd and Holly Kerr. Starting with the State Club, a bar and grill in the heart of Denton, Todd began sharing his love for the industry. After ten years, he sold his portion of the State Club and began a new adventure with Macklin’s Catering Company. Living in Coppell at the time, Todd and Holly were presented with an opportunity to open J. Macklin’s Grill. Coppell expressed a desire to have a gathering space for families, for couples, and for the community in general, so they jumped right in. Venue Forty|50 was the next step.

These concepts are built on a foundation of family and community. As a team, we approach business as an art, an idea that people want to be a part of. We put tremendous care into creating a space that makes you feel comfortable the second you step foot through the door.
