Angus University featuring Edd Hendee
Edd Hendee and his wife, Nina, own and operate the renowned Taste of Texas restaurant in Houston, which they launched in 1977. The restaurant has gained local and national acclaim for setting the standard of steakhouse excellence and for its consummate Texas hospitality. In 1984, the restaurant needed a new concept for survival. Hendee embraced the Certified Angus Beef® brand and doubled sales in three years. In 1991, they constructed their own building, leading to a 300-seat hotspot and growing fame as today’s top volume independent restaurant in the world for Certified Angus Beef®. Hendee spoke to 2017 Angus Convention attendees about the significance of the Certified Angus Beef® brand and how their Angus beef lands on his dining room table.
