We had the good fortune of connecting with King Chris and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi King, we’d love to hear what makes you happy.
The biggest thing in life that makes me happy is seeing my family and circle happy for sure. What gives me joy is being able to play a part in being a piece of their happiness. I feel as if my reasons stem from growing up and realizing life can be as sweet or as harsh as you look at it. Perspective is everything and if you can help someone see the world differently, that’s one of the greatest gifts you can share.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
APEX stands for Apply Pressure Evolve Xcite. The official logo is a butterfly because I aspire to inspire and evolve if you will , over time and when my grandparents passed I would literally dream of butterflies, next thing you know they would land on my car or just follow me around, I feel I’ll always have a piece of them with me integrated into my business and success.. I got the inspiration from looking at where I was in life at the time a sophomore in college not really sure of what I wanted to do once I left school but I knew I wanted to build something I could use to impact the hearts of the people. It was fairly easy to develop the concept because APEX is top of the food chain in it’s literal definition. Anything that we touch I want it to be to the best of our abilities , I felt if people seen that as long as you give your all God will honor that and bless you x10. From music to the charts to security to artists to models I’m plugging in the city one person at a time.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Austin definitely has a lot of places to check out. At times the hardest thing is figuring out where you want to end up to be honest. A typical week just vibing in the city for me would most likely be filled with food from either Down South Cajun eats , Galloways sandwich shop or we pulling up to Victory Grill you can’t go wrong with either of those places trust me. For drinks we definitely sliding to Cru hookah lounge until 2am they wings fire there too no lie don’t sleep on them. When 2am hit if you still up vibing with the kid we sliding to swing hookah I know it sounds like lounge after lounge but if you not on that type of time old faithful is The Domain ,Rainey , or west 6th. It’s too many lit people in the city to name I don’t want to miss anybody just know the ones that know they lit know they lit if I’m in your vicinity and establishment you definitely bringing something to the city cause I’m not pulling up to just have mediocre service or business.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
All of my success stems from the creator in whose image we were created from I wouldn’t be anything without God. I definitely wouldn’t be who I am today without my family as well we may have our bumps in the road but at the end of the day we all know we have each other if nobody else does and that’s what it’s all about. The people around me inspire me to be greater than myself and also to be able to look outside of myself. Also shout out to my mom she does have a book out titled “Asunder” by Geraldine Hudson she’s a wonderful poet.
