Kyle Swift moved to the sandy beaches of the Panhandle in 2006. He spent over 20 years in the restaurant industry before starting his own catering business. He is very well-known in the food and restaurant industry and his name recognition continues to grow as he and his partner, Dallin Harris, (former owner of Barbacoa Mexican Grill) recently purchased La Loba’s Bakery in Blue Mountain Beach. He has always had a passion for food and loves to serve the families who vacation on 30A.
Kyle is also very active in the community and volunteers at the South Walton Fire Department Pancake Breakfast each year. The event raises money for the department to provide fire safety training for the children in the South Walton community.
After Hurricane Michael ravaged the surrounding communities, Kyle and some of his closest friends banded together to clear trees and debris from peoples’ homes and yards. But they didn’t stop there. Together they formed Christmas for the Coast, and with the help of local businesses served over 120 families, many of which lost all their belongings in the devastating storm. Through donations and volunteers, the event provided these well-deserving families with a real Christmas that they otherwise would not have been able to afford during such difficult times. “Bringing hope and happiness for better days to come to so many struggling children and families is one of the best decisions I ever made. I hope to be able to continue to give back to the community I know and love,” Swift says.
