Newport Restaurant Group: A Successful Employee-Owned Enterprise

Rhode Island is home to Newport Restaurant Group. A collection of more than 14 restaurants, plus an historic inn and a brand-new high-end grocery and take-out store, this company boasts being 100% employee owned.

Newport Restaurant Group’s website proclaims, “Join Newport Restaurant Group, and you’ll not just be an employee — you’ll become an owner…If you work here, you’re eligible to become an owner in the company. We’ve found that it makes our team stronger, because going the extra mile for every guest ultimately benefits us all. Plus, employee ownership means taking care of each other. So we also offer full-coverage benefits, generous time off and room for career advancement.”

How did they start and grow this organization? How did they survive and even prosper in the midst of a global pandemic? How do these employee owners manage themselves? Come here Newport Restaurant Group’s President and CEO and Chief Financial Officer discuss these issues.
