A newly opened Killeen restaurant recently held a family-night event and is aiming to make the occasion a recurring one.

Kejun Aroma, 5201 S. Clear Creek Road Suite B, hosted its first family night on Aug. 2. Families sat together with their children having conversations and enjoying family time during the event that began at 5 p.m. In the building a few of the children decided to get face paining done while their parents looked on.

Kejun Aroma has been opened since February. The owners are Marquis Augustus and Rochelle Richardson.

“The event is to celebrate family and to have families to sit down and eat together. We are also celebrating the children going back to school,” said Richardson.

The restaurant owners and employees work with the community and are involved in different charity events.

“We donate to different charitable events. We donate our money, food, time, whatever we can,” said Augustus.

During the family night event, the aroma from restaurant’s kitchen wafted through the establishment. Kejun Aroma serves Louisiana dishes such as red beans and rice.

Thomas Aikens came to Killeen area from Maryland to visit family.

“The food looks good,” said Aikens, 76. “We found this place when my daughter-in-law Googled it and said we should try it out.”

Kejun Aroma aims to make family night a monthly thing.
